My splicing attempts

Recommended Posts

how much is the course if you don't mind me asking?

 

I think it was £165. That includes all your tools,rope and as much food and drink as you can get through:001_tongue:

Nice work, it's amazing how easy it is once you get your head around it, do you do the bury in one go or do you, like me, do it in four? Shame I had to miss the course after waiting all this time.

 

can,t believe you missed it

i expected a splicing thread monday night tbh

i did a nod course about 18 months ago and now even splice my bootlaces:001_rolleyes:

i do a 16 strand in 2 burys

did nod show you double braid as well

I can't believe it either Bob, the perils of having children that fall ill at the worse possible time.

 

Still, life goes on, Saturday the 19th is my new date.:001_smile:

He did show us the double braid,looks a bit more complex! Gonna try and perfect 16strand before moving on. How do you find doing the double braid?

Doublebraid is a headtrip at first, but once you have the hang of it you wont want to go back to 16 strand!
