      Hi Samia,

      I don't think I was the one who asked the original question (but lord
      knows I'm not sure what I had for breakfast this morning.) My area
      of interest is primarily Elizabethan but I think a lot of the narrow
      ware braids (fingerloop braiding, tablet weaving and kumihimo) give
      pretty much the same result and it wouldn't be noticable if I used
      one or the other as decoration.

      In any case, I'm enjoying doing the kumihimo for simple braids for
      award cords, but would love to learn some new patterns.
