Monkey Fists

On the First Thursday in October we got together to learn how to make Monkey Fists. These little balls can be used for a variety of closures. I have seen them on some sites as  survival skills, with a rock inside they can be used as bolos or  as a weighted end for throwing a light line into a tree for hoisting up gear to keep it safe. I have used monkey fists as a closure on inkle-woven bags.

 

There was a lot of laughter and a good time was had by all!
