Truly magnificent!
I am lost though on how you built your gather. How do you get a flat color with black or dark color edges in the middle of the twisty?
I am going to try this when it warms up and I wont freeze working outside.

Wow! Thanks for putting up those great pictures. I imagine it'll still take a heck of a lot of practice to get them looking as perfect as yours do! It sure helps to see the steps, though. You're awesome!

Awesome!!!! Thank you so much - do you think I dare even try such a thing on a Hot Head? (If you knew me, you'd KNOW I already intend to....!!!!) Any tips would be appreciated, though!

Thanks again and Happy Holidays to you and yours!

Hi There:

I think that Kimberly's Twistie Tut is a great example of how to start practicing and give you the basic concept; here's the link:
