The Lucet

I've always been intrigued with lucet cording. It's an ancient craft and looked to me like it would go fast. I've done inkle weaving but it's a production to warp up a loom to do something simple like a dog leash. (Besides, my inkle loom is in storage)

I've tried kumihimo cording which does beautiful cords, but it's a bit tedious. Great for meditating.

I read that you could make simple lucets out of a plastic spoon by breaking off the two middle tines. I realized I had just the thing to practice on - a wooden shuttle.

 This was my first practice piece with thick yarn. It was even easier than I thought and went fast. Now I really have to get a proper lucet.
