      Yes, I must say that was my thought on seeing this thread as well, but not
      knowing how much lacing is required, I can see where that may not be
      practical. Kumihimo is rather addictive.. I had my father in law build a
      Maru-Dai for me after a week or so playing with the cardboard one we got at
      Nottinghill colligieum.

      see the lacings.) <g>

      Wow! That's impressive. You don't happen to have the pattern, do you?
      I've just started learning...and it's lots of fun.

      Learning is a lifetime journey...growing older merely adds experience to
      knowledge
      and wisdom to curiosity.
