string me a story
this morning i made a piece of string
quite fine. shown here alongside some grey-dyed #5 silk/cotton from Beautiful Silks to give an idea of scale [the string is on the right]
and it occurred to me there might be some fun in it.
i'll offer a [sur]prize to the first person who can guess what the string is made of
another to the follower [ie i'd like you to sign up to follow this blog if you don't already] who writes me the most exciting/amusing story about its possible provenance
and if i get lucky and build to the magical number of 900 followers, there'll be a third present randomly drawn...
you've got until the weekend ie Sunday 25th March if you're in yesterdayland on the other side of the Pacific or Monday 26th March if you live on this side of the international dateline. my European friends will have to do the complex math themselves to see where they fit in...
