Inspired, of course, by the internets, I decided to pick up the childhood art of knotted friendship bracelets.  Only this time, instead of dinky embroidery floss, I busted out this stuff:

Which, in a wonderfully short time (maybe twenty minutes?) came together into this:

They're huge and chunky and wonderful!  I love the look; it's nostalgic, but the size seems to add something a little more... modern? That's not the word I'm looking for.  Something different and fresh, at least.

Now I've got to figure out what patterns to try with the rest of the thread.  What were your favorites?

I blogged this here.

That's definitely a cool update on the friendship bracelets from childhood.  They do look more modern -- especially with the colors you used -- and substantial.  

Where did you get waxed cotton thread that thick?

www.firemountaingems.com  They have a great selection on all sorts of jewelry supplies and great customer service, but I've got to warn you, you have to call them to opt out of their catalog mailing service, and to opt out of their sharing your address with other craft companies. There's no online checkbox sort of option. That's what makes me hesitant to link to them in my blog &etc.

It's obviously not that annoying, because I still buy from them.  And they have tons of colors in the waxed cotton thread!  I bought the 2mm.
