I have discovered how to do a five braid. It truly is easy and you probably could use the same principle of
the braid for any odd number... 7, 9, 11. Here is the link I used, twas' most helpful and instructive: 5 braid
My project[s] have been scarflettes. Scarflettes are easy, quick, fun to make and really very practical. You see, scarves take up much more yarn for one, and then also there's the problem of it coming unwound around your neck as the tails seem to always be flying this way and that. Scarflettes you button and forget about. Did I mention they are snugger?
This^^ has been my new "love" :) I came flying to mother dear after inspiration hit and asked "Can I buy this from you!?" I was waving a clothes hanger under her nose and to which she replied "You can have it... But what's going on in that brain of yours?" Ahh well, an idea...
It took me a while to finally get the wire to cooperate and shape into a word. But after I did, I wrapped white yarn around it (and that's harder than it looks). It's now displayed proudly on our kitchen window sill until I find further use for it.
