I hate it when I am right.
It is so not fun to spend hours creating something, and then have it fall apart.
Especially when it is a gift, and doubly so when it is to my Beloved!
Don't believe them when they say Nymo D on the large spool will hold.
It will fray over time.
DH was given, and followed, instructions as to how to be gentle with the 4 bead tubular herringbone rope on this bolo.
You can see in the one photo that it is a soft leather backing, that I stitched in place just snug enough to barely hold the rope in place.
The nymo stretched, and finally gave out, despite pre-stretching.
I would rather pay the extra, and use Fireline!
I hope it can be redone before his Spring concert this Thurs...grrrrrr!
Pooh on you, Nymo!
