Lucet Tip: How to figure out where you left off

 

I have been really busy getting together The 7 Day Lucet Challenge.  So busy, in fact, that I just realized that I hadn't blogged about it.

The challenge is simple: Learn to Lucet in 7 Days.  (Even if you don't have a Lucet!) I will teach you how to make 6 different kinds of cords. You will end the challenge with a new fiber skill in your bag of tricks.

The above tip is just one of the nuggets of lucet wisdom I'm sharing in the challenge.

I'm really excited by how many people have signed up and by the enthusiasm.  It makes me feel really good to know there are so many other people out there as excited as I am to learn and explore strange, niche tools!

The challenge only kicked off this past Saturday, so those who signed up the first day are only on Day 3.  Even though it is so early in the challenge, I have already seen such brilliant stuff. What I am totally loving are some of the DIY Lucets that people are coming up with!! 

A number of folks have posted their brilliant lucet hacks as comments or posts on the Stitch Diva Studios Facebook Page.  Please know that if you post like that, no one else can see it when searching Facebook with the tag #7DayLucetChallenge. You need to make a public post on your own profile with the hashtag.  Tagging Stitch Diva Studios in your post doesn't hurt though and it will also show up on our page.  

Take a look at what has been posted with the hashtag so far:


 

There are prizes that will be awarded weekly to folks that are posting with this hashtag.  If you are participating in the challenge, stay tuned for details in your inbox.
