FANTASTIC, SOCKS! So happy to hear you're moving forward so positively. Love all the work and you should snap a shot of that ceiling soon!

Thanks bunches, Ahavati! Been having an issue with the UV light I got, it doesn't flood the room like I had hoped so once I sort that out I'll get a quick snap of it.

That looks cool Luna, well done for avoiding it twisting up on itself. Nice to see a pic of kumihimo in the making. (I spent 6 years making weaving looms & accessories, 2001-7, inspired by a visit to Japan in 2000 where we came across the "Saori" movement and the family involved celebrating their 30th anniverseary - purely coincidental - but we came back with one of their neat 'fold-up' looms, which led to me inventing the YarnShifter hand-weaving loom [a meccano kit for weavers]).

Did the second coat of black in there and decided I like it better without the UV light anyway, so I set the tripod up. My phone won't capture the whole ceiling, it's a 10m sq room, so here are some bits, definitely my largest canvas to date.

Thatís incredible, Josh!  Iím a huge fan of all things string, especially kumihimo! I had a beautiful Japanese marudai that my cousin brought back when he visited ears ago, but it was broken in the move to ND .

I decided to take on a project for a friend of mine who is a shibari artist.  My tiny little hybrid marudai wouldnít fit the threads I needed to make a 16-strand 40-ft rope, so I improvised and made my own from a bar stool, a knitting circle, and a lazy Susan lol.  My tamas are antique industrial spools.  It works fine and dandy for the project, if I can ever get my tension just right, that is .

That looks like a very creative solution to me, Luna; simple, elegant and nicely done.
