Well I don't sell anything anywhere.... but did get a bunch of cord and crochet thread and various packs of all kinds of what I would describe as cords of some sort you know packs like bias binding comes in size packs and big spools as well...
I already have more wood and yarn and crochet cotton and knitting cotton than I will ever use but..... for $5 Cdn got a big box full in addition to my stashes.... I keep looking at the stuff and thinking..... so out of the blue I was using the Rosary one of a few my husband brought back from Brazil RIO Corcovado Shrine.... my absolute favourites were the 2 huge wooden beat Rosary sets... the beads are dark brown and on knotted ivory cream type cord.. very strong cord because these rosaries have been used on daily basis for 10 years or so... so I reached into the bag of goodies and fished out the spool of off white thought it was butcher twine no it is some kind of cotton poly fishing cord... or maybe what you would use on venetian blinds... and I watched YOUTUBE how to do the knots just one video.. and tried - well it isn't going very well knots end up random spaced - not perfect... and not like the wooden Rosary beads which are like a really big pea very small grape size... those beads are wrapped I think 7 times round have no idea how the wrap stays in place cant see knot but it could be under the wooden bead... needs way more research... anyway I would need to find some large wooden beads to make the rosaries.... it takes according to youtube 60 beads approx. per set... then I thought perhaps the fishing venetian blind cording is too fine maybe 8 spools of rat tail 100 yards per spool but that is rather not conduicive in my mind to holding a knot too satiny slippery but do have very dark burgundy and black both would work with wooden beads if they were dark...
