This post is titled:
I started the first braid back in January, and I finished up the last braid of this 28 braid project during the A&S display at Pennsic 41.
I've learned a lot about braiding over the course of this project. By example, Jacqui Carey teaches how to expand, vary, and combine the 8-strand patterns (that are also in her book) to make braids that are more interesting texturally and structurally. I have found some real favorites in here. If you want to see all the braids, I've put together a page showing all 28 at once. Each image is a link to a higher resolution version.
