I did a 20 ga run at Rondo a la Byzantine. How do I figure out the ring count for an 18 ga version? Or shoul ...

For a guy, it might be average. For a woman, I think it's pretty big as I have never. Been able to wear ladies gloves because the fingers are t ...

Now I'm jealous. I wish we could have made it.

Okay. I am totally officially jealous. I will someday have a dedicated craft room.

I guess that makes sense. I suffer from Murphy's Law and tend to pad estimates because of that.

*shakes head*

I know I will be working with 18 gauge which has a wire diameter of 1.0, right?

I did a practice run of 1 1/2 inches of the weave in 20 gauge. It stands to reason that rings in a b ...
