SO Unfair!

Just since posting earlier, I have come across yet another fiber art that intrigues me: ply split braiding! I don’t know much about it…yet…but I know I need a tool called a gripfid, and I know there are books and tutorials available, and that there are beautiful, beautiful examples of it on Pinterest, and that I will eventually need a cord maker. Oddly enough, I think the four hook fringe maker I already have might just do the trick for that!!

It’s so unfair; I don’t need another interest here! I didn’t need to see more beautiful pictures of things I could make, not to mention tools I could buy! Because, naturally, I’ve already seen that a set of gripfids in three sizes will cost $30, which is actually not bad…do you see how this goes?! I should never, ever look at anything at all on the computer…and this came out of a post on a Revelry forum where someone mentioned ply-split braiding. And I just had to ask, what is ply-split braiding…and that was it. Oooooooos and aaaaahhhhs followed, along with some quick research, nothing near what I would need to do to try it, but plenty to pique my interest! Down another rabbit hole…

I can see that if and when we ever sell this house to buy a new one, I am going to need some real studio space, just because I need to be able to organize and section off different fiber arts from each other, so that I can find any given thing at any given time!
