DP -- Cane Lanyard
- Hi, everyone:
Just put a new photo in my album:
_Yahoo! Photos - CaneLanyard_
The strap from my cane broke off and I decided I needed one that was a bit
more personalized. : - )
The strap is simple 4-strand round braid and the knot is a 7 X 6 Pineapple
Knot. After making enough of the braid to go around the thimble, I took 2
strands through the beginning bight. Then I made the rest of the length of
braid needed and spliced the ends into the braid at the base of the thimble.
Then I doubled back the ends (none of them were longer than a couple of inches)
and wrapped them around the braid to build up the diameter of the braid just
a bit at that point, so the Pineapple Knot would have a little better shape.
The entire thing is made of 1/8-inch kangaroo lace.
It's after midnight and I have to go somewhere tomorrow, but I'm having so
much fun I can't stop! LOL
Next up: I think I'll make a Hansen knot grip for the cane!
Yeah, I know..."Get a grip!" ; - )
Sorry the scan isn't so great. Hard to get the scanner to focus when the
subject is 3-D. I plan to take a photo of the whole thing when the grip is
finished, tho. : - )
Happy knotting, all.
Happily entangled in my own knots!
