well … honesty is an underestimated virtue….. thank goodness I didn’t know this in high school though shrug
I saw an article in a craft magazine about knitting with wire. I was just crazy enough to try it but soon realized I was sane enough to recognize it was nuts. Knitting with protective gloves was impossible and without was very painful.
Need to know the rules to know which ones you should break!
Mercy! What a thing! I never knew—-
Anyone who would make chain links out of wire is a better person than I am. I’m with Amanda ~ I would find a cheater way to do it ~ being the lazy person I am.
My husband makes them. With the sterling wire. He got the hang of it pretty quickly. The right tools help.
Dan is a multi talented man. I applaud his efforts! What does he do with them? Hand them out at church?
I tried to make chain mail art but got ‘winded’. For some reason I hit a wall after a bit and can’t function for awhile. It may be ADHD.. I was never diagnosed.
I had a job where I had to load small parts into industrial furnaces that ran at high temperatures. We had to fixture many of them to prevent warping. I got pretty good with baling wire.
Maybe the tedium is part of the meditative process. ;)
