Oh I just love it!!!

This is my first proper winter doing it - hell we were snowed in for a week and I loved it!! Spent a great deal of time knotting and wondering what all the fuss was about weather wise??

Now looking forward to the warmer weather and feeling the heat of the sun as I sit outside and knot.

The only thing is that as I am still a beginner, I need posts like this for inspiration and ideas!!

Nice fobs Essexman. What is your resource for the paracord?

SS

Cheers for the kind words.

There's a mix of cords in those pics.

Although I'm in the UK my last 1000ft came from the supplycaptain -http://www.supplycaptain.com/index.cfm?category=6

Great cord at a not bad price. But you need to buy a fair bit to make the shipping worth while. As a side note boxes from there always fly under the radar so no C&E fees to worry about (so far).

I've also used the bushcraftstore in Enfield , North London. Only a 20 mins drive. They have an online store and sell on eBay (UK). Really nice guys, great customer sevice, but I have found some of their cord to be a bit unround/flat so went back to the supply captain.

There's another major supplier in the UK called 5 star cord who has a large website, but I've not used them.

Hope that helps.

As I am in the U.S. the Supply Captain link is familiar to me, but you may have just helped some U.K. based brothers and sisters. Thank you for sharing that.

Nice earrings Tatian!
I may have to try to make some like that for someone I know.

Did you use any kind of "stiffener agent" to help them keep their shape?
