Olives

Postby Old Hat » Thu Jul 27, 2017 7:55 am

Tying up some olives yesterday. As usual, the tying session starts with some established patterns then transgresses into experimentation usually after I find a material in my drawer that I haven't seen in a while. Yesterday it was Hends Body Quill. A very fine spooled tinsel that is made of 3 fine strands of different shades. The first 2, the Hends is wrapped over primrose thread and red tinsel, muting the tinsel a bit and making an olive color over the thread. Medium dun hen hackle. The second one is a little darker due to a well waxed thread. The third experimentation, I really like the way it turned out. I touched dubbed some primrose thread with natural mole and then twisted that with the Hends. Jackdaw hackle.

Oh man! Always enjoy seeing your experiments, Carl, but that third one is simply exquisite. And the jackdaw is so well behaved ;) .

These sound very interesting, Carl, but I cannot see them - I only see the white minus symbol within a gray circle. I am viewing with a Chrome browser.

I can't see them in Firefox, either.

This gets more weird by the day; I can see them just fine in Chrome but not using Internet Explorer.

Hmm. They show up fine for me. I haven't changed anything from what I have done before. Here is the 3rd one. Does this show up?

Here is the actual link if that helps. At least you'll be able to see it.
