My First Kumihimo

For the past two Saturdays, Pocono Mountain EGA has been having a kumihimo workshop. This is my sampler braid after the first week. I went home and finished it the next day.

The technique is pretty easy to get a handle on, but it can get confusing making sure you're doing the right pattern for what you want. I'll be using the technique to make custom trim for ornaments and such, so expect to see some more eventually.

How exciting! I've bought instructions and supplies but haven't been brave enough to give kumihimo a try yet. You inspire me!
