Australian Bullwhip 1/2 finished

Australian Bullwhip 1/2 finished

I’m feeling a bit better today after getting 13 hours of sleep…but I am still sick.  Sometimes you hear stories of entertainers collasping onstage and dying.  Well I know why, even if you are sick, you have to do the gig.  Sure if you are really dying,  you can call in sick…but don’t expect to get booked next year. 

This afternoon I did some plaiting on the Australian bullwhip and I am over halfway finished with the overlay.  I’m not sure if I’m going to end at an 8 plait or 6 plait.  From what I believe an aussie whip traditionally ends in an 8 plait while an american bullwhip ends in a 6 plait.

This whip has a very slim profile and I’m not sure if I like that or not.  But I was trying to make this whip more stockwhip-esque, so the thinner profile fits.   We’ll see how it turns out.
