Dangerous Compassions

more hemp

The fight is over, but people are talking loudly outside. I guess I could put in ear plugs to score. But it’s almost time for Erik to get the laundry.

Meanwhile, I’m making great progress in the hemp department–I’m skilled at the square knot chain, and I even figured out how to get the cowrie shells in there. What I don’t understand yet and need to learn is how long the pieces of hemp need to be to make a finished product of a certain size. The thing I just made is too big to be a bracelet, too small to be a headband (I was going for a headband).

Also, I don’t understand closures. The kit provides large beads which are supposed to be hooked on a hemp loop. Pretty sketchy. Also, the holes in the beads are too small for the hemp to go through, so I couldn’t use them even if I wanted to. There’s got to be a better way.

Good at listening to the noise until it makes sense.
