My biased e6-1 18swg 1/4" stainless belt. Been working on it for a year, maybe 60 hours so far, and stil less than half finished.

Shoulda used a looser weave....

-kurik-
i was playing with some 14 guage copper wire and then *snap* right in my hand Crying (very sad) like a twig! i cried. plus what makes it worse is i have no money to buy a new pair and that was my favorite one! Crying (very sad) it crossed my mind to jus start the project with my hand instead of pliers. i didn't get far Rolling Eyes go figure

bias is when you weave at an angle across the weave. The rows and colums are on diagonals.

kurik,

Hour for hour my most time consuming project was my coif. It is not easy to try to speedweave an expanding circle weave. My most timing consuming project "in total" is my in-progress byrnie/hauberk. I have taken a break from it to work on some bottles that way I do not get burned out.


Peace,

Matt


'Tis true my form is something odd,
But blaming me is blaming God;
Could I create myself anew
I would not fail in pleasing you.
If I could reach from pole to pole
Or grasp the ocean with a span,
I would be measured by the soul;
The mind's the standard of the man.

A Bronze Shirt. Wire diameter.062" 14ga (awg) Ring ID approx .210".
ring count approx 50,000 time to make 300 plus hours spread out over 4.5 years. Why so long to make, I hand wound each 3' piece of wire about 1400+ then cut each ring one at a time then knitted it. Smile

It is well-known that the body is made up of various elements, among these being iron. The reason we know the body has iron in it is because we can taste the iron in our blood. Therefore, it stands to reason that the iron in our blood will be drawn to the north, just as the iron needle on the compass is drawn to the north.

In order to make the body compass work, you must shut your eyes, so as not to confuse things, extend the right arm with the index finger pointing, then spin around three times to the left. When you stop, open your eyes, and you will discover that you are facing north.

My first project when I began knitting was my haubergeon. It's dagged with short sleeves and took about four months to make.

Now, I'm proud to say, I can complete a knee length hauberk with long sleeves and mittens in about seventy-five to eighty hours.

I can also complete an expanding row coif in about twelve hours.

That would be a 'rat-mail' chessboard I'm still working on. 24 ga 1/8" 6-in-1. Stupidly dense maille, anyone? I'd wager it will probably contain about 20,000 links by the time I'm done, and that doesn't count the pieces. So far, I've got most of one end done, and sixteen pawns consisting of 1/8" 20 ga Japanese variants. Not sure what I'll do for the other pieces, however.
