Look what I got in the mail!!
How exciting! I've always wanted to learn the Kumihimo braiding technique.
Yay, thanks Cousin Corporation!
I noticed the Primabead.com site is focusing on Kumihimo right now and providing some great ideas with free patterns.
I learned the tubular peyote stitch many years ago and remember how exciting and fun it was, how all I could see was endless possibilities.
I got very hooked and then crashed and burned.
I haven't practiced it in several years so when I received the Kumihimo board and some really bright and cheerful supplies, that old feeling began to stir!
I hope to take it out of the package this coming weekend to give it a try. In the mean time, I'd LOVE to hear your stories about learning Kumihimo. Make sure to leave links to designs you want to show off!!!
AND, any encouragement you might want to share or little helpful tips to help me over any typical learning curve bumps and bruises. :)
Thanks so much!
