We are having some work done around the house and things are going to be a bit crazy. It may or may not impact my ability to do crafty things, as I also have a face-to-face with my consultant, a 2 hour drive away. Not fun, but required.
I am still making laces, and have been playing with AGLETS.
They are metal tips for shoelaces. Ideally I would use a proper crimping tool to close them but while I feel pretty sure we have one I am not too sure where it is. Crimping the ends of the laces with a regular pair of pliers is possible, but not beautiful.
I had to fine-tune the crimping a bit to fix the flat bits (which do NOT fit thru the eyelets very well!) but they did fit in the end:
Over all. I prefer the clear plastic 3mm heat shrink tubes as the yarn shows thru.
I made a little PDF, cause I know people like things in that format so they can download them and save them so here it is.
I really love the idea of having laces that match my hand-knitted socks LOL!
I can see there is a new AJJ challenge so I really must try to fit that in, amidst all the work in the house!
