    IMG_9968.jpg IMG_9967.jpg Well since this is a small project it travels with me so I get a bit more work time with it. I have come up with a way to terminates the ends without the small clamp! Sadly after all of this, the weave has shrunk the braid to far to be of use so I either have to unbraid six inches or so and braid in more come up with end I can attach to this to complete the length. I knew it would shorten and intended to add ends but I am shorter then I thought, in reality, and with this piece! Doh!

    I think it will be dyed Green, turquoise, or red. Anyone for keeping it natural? The issue will be the ends might be a different color, which could very well work out great.

    It was surprisingly simple once Ingot the pattern under my fingers. I would loose my place then wind up unwinding a few courses to figure out where I was but it really is fairly easy.
