|8 winds on the Thing-a-ma-Jig. Get it? Jig? Sigh.|
Ok, show of hands – who here has actually made their own string from scratch? I know at least a few of you out there have. I’m not talking about bowstring mix-in-a-box here, I mean the whole naked spool to string on your bow and shooting arrows recipe.
This week, I got my first how-to in string making. Being the artsy-craftsy gal that I am, it was actually fun aside from the “has to be accurate” part which admittedly I am not so good at. Sort of like taking a test before you read the book. Plus, my technique was more like a cat batting a toy round and round, but hey, it got the job done.

- and this was a GOOD target
|AFTER - withOUT clicker yet! Woot!|
Clicker - needs some adjusting and shorter arrows, but I can see the potential of where this is going to be when everything is set up. I still have to stttrreetch to get it to go off. If I could just grow my draw length by a half inch, I'd be all set. But surprisingly better groups even when not using the clicker. Can't wait to get out and practice today. Heck, yeah!
