I just found this community and I am very excited about it. I hope to learn a lot of good stuff here. I am trying to learn how to make whips. I have Ron Edward's book How to Make Whips and am following along as best I can. I haven't ever done anything like that before so the actual braiding is challenging. I used to macrame when I was younger, so I thought that would give me a start, but WRONG.
I have gotten the easy things like the spanish ring knot down and have just about figured out the turks head, but can't seem to get a handle on whip braiding.
Are there some good sites I can check into or does anyone here have some pointers for a beginner?
Is anyone here from Louisiana?
