Improvising for results!

When even the most conventional and immediate tools at your disposal just aren't meeting your needs, you can always improvise and I did just that. I needed to make a small cord for a project I am working on and all my Lucets were just not small enough. I wanted a strong but small cordage about a foot long. I thought of pictures I had seen where the colonists used forks made of bone or wood to make their cordage for their uniforms so I went to the cabinet and got a fork!

I broke off the two center pieces and began wrapping my homemade "lucet" to make my fine cord.

Here is my finished project to scale with a penny! Just what I needed to complete my latest project! I am so pleased with the results, I used hand spun single ply alpaca. It is soft and strong, just right for what I need!
