Poseidon again

Did all the metallics. And now I want to know. Why was the gold braid so difficult to work with but the confetti colored braid was easy? I handled them exactly the same. That gold just had to be difficult.

Then I started beading and decided to try this invisible thread that I bought. It's invisible alright. I can hardly see it to thread the damn needle!

Jo,

Don't know know of any lucet specific blogs out there but there are a number of SCA textile related Yahoo groups and quite a number of websites. So a quick search of +SCA +lucet should get you a fair bit of info. If not, drop me another comment and I will see if I can track one or two people down who might be able to help.

Cheers,
Jane

Thanks, Laren. I know I've seen people walking around the Ren fairs working with lucets. Probably a case of practice makes perfect and all that jazz.
