Friendship Bracelet

Let me reveal something: friendship bracelets is about knots. Lots and lots of knots......and keeping those strings of embroidery yarn straight. Did not finish a bracelet today, but I did learn how to do the left and right turns and grasping the essential of THE ARROW pattern - consider above as my training piece, as there are some mistakes to be spotted. As soon as I get the Christmas cards needed this year finished, I will start making what should hopefully end up as my first friendship bracelet :o)

The National Museum of Denmark is currently hosting the exhibit POW WOW and had invited Helene from SMYKS to hold this course (she was also the instructor on the lucky bracelet course I went to a couple of weeks ago). We were a little group of five, and I seem to be the only one signing up without the intention of being able to learn kids how to do this - but it was interesting to hear about their approach to a course like this, as their daily professions are so different from mine, an still we were all eager to learn something new.

Oh, I really like this! I don't have the manual dexterity to do something like that. I bought Beep a Braidzilla braclete making kit for Christmas, maybe we can work on one together!
