Weekend of Braiding

I spent way to much time on kumihimo this weekend. I got a bunch of other stuff done, too, though some of that can be tallied in the braiding column as well, like buying supplies for a third marudai. Anyway, here are the three braids I completed:


Four strand, two color braid of silk yarn


Eight strand, eight color braid of embroidery floss


Eight strand, two color braid of silk yarn

I'm really enamored of the 100% silk yarn I bought on Saturday at a local Pittsburgh knitting store that specializes in natural fibers. Expect to see a lot of that stuff in the future, especially since I bought entire hanks of the stuff.
