Brookenic, I'd love to see a picture of yours and know what yarn you used, when you complete it. I've been thinking about making one for my 21yod. I'm still to new at this knitting thing to be familiar enough with yarns to be comfortable in choosing one, since whatever I use will have to be ordered online (no LYS here). I know I'll want my dd's to be something wild and funky. :D
I have to make a guitar strap for my best friend.
Only he wants it made out of hemp!
My local store has some red hemp yarn and I'm looking for black or natural to go with. I think I'll double knit it (need to learn) and put his nickname "Parliament" along it.
I'm unsure how to do ends that are super secure, I'm sure a braided hemp loop should be strong enough, and easy to replace.
If anyone will let me know any obvious flaws with my plan, I'd most appreciate it.
That sounds really neat to me, but I'm too inexperienced to help you with your plan. I think I'll just sit back and wait for you or Brooke to get yours made, here your reviews of it's difficulty (or lack of it), then decide if I want to attempt one for my dd for Christmas. :D
