Ren Faire Whips and Cutting Lace…

Yesterday my family and I went to the Washington Midsummer Renaissance Faire to see a friend of mine who was performing there.  A couple of the vendors there were selling bullwhips and snake whips:

I also started cutting up lace for the four 9 foot rods that I’m plaiting over.  I’ve cut up over 200 dm of kangaroo for them:

Later today I’m going to start the plaiting.  The pain in the butt when plaiting over something long and rigid is that you have to untangle the lace after every pull or two.  Making the first six feet really labor intensive, but he last few feet got pretty quickly!
