Well as my excuse always is, I'm in Grenada.
The only thing I could find was some jute twine :/ (but it was super cheap!! less than $2us)
but I am pretty happy with my first attempt at a necklace out of it and I made a bracelet too.
I learned how to tie a few different knots here.
Oh those boy scouts... always prepared.
Since this is the only twine I have... I currently have some soaking in bleach and another in food coloring to make some different colors... so more to come!
