and that burning smell is my brain working it.

After much frustration I can FINALLY now do simple fingerloop braiding. Now it's only a 4 loop spiral but I can produce a decent braid. With only two moves and no walking of the cords down my fingers it is still a struggle. The breakthrough came with a class I took at the Barony of Lochmere Mid-Winter Revel last month. I was able to learn this simple braid.

Incredulously enough, I can knit, crochet, lucet, embroider, tablet weave, kumihimo all while holding a conversation. Finger loop braid is so hard for me that any distraction to my two move rhythm causes me to get lost. It's a brain/body coordination thing for me. My body is the tool making the braid. All my other crafts use "holders" for the work. I can feel my brain struggling with the pattern, the movements, and getting my body to pull it all together.

For now this is good enough and I am happy!
