If you're not knitting, the terrorists win

(My mostly on-topic ramblings about knitting. And life in general. My life in specific.)

I'm a middle aged mother of 2 grown children and wife to a man who doesn't seem to mind my almost heroin-like yarn addiction. I spend my time writing, knitting, and generally stressing out.

Braided Coils

Remember when I showed you the Princess Leia hat and said it would be finished really quickly because I only had to make the braided coils and sew them on. ONLY. Ha!

I suppose I underestimated how much time it would take to cut 84 50" strands of yarn. Let me tell you. It takes a long time.

Here are my 84 strands, in two bundles of 42 strands each.

And here is one, braided and coiled.

The coiling was a little more difficult than you might imagine, but only because I really need glasses! Brown yarn on brown yarn. I was basically sewing these coils together on faith.

I suppose I should just go ahead and sew these braided buns on the hat, but frankly I'm a little sick of it right now. LOL. Tomorrow.
