    Hmmm.....Black?? I've never seen it, but maybe you could specil order it somehow. I mean, it is "flagging tape", so I'm guessing that it only comes in bright colors that are easily spotted and easy to stand out. I got it in, orange, yellow, lime green, blue, HOT PINK, white, and that's about it. But, all of the colors are like NEON colors, and really pretty. Good luck, anything else??

    EXPENSIVE????? No way!!! Flagging tape is REALLY REALLY CHEAP, that's another reason why I LOVE IT!!! Yeah, I'm referring to the stuff used as markers and often seen on the side of the road. You can find it at LOWE'S , the hardware store, and Home Depot, places like that. You can buy it in one of two different quanities. I think, keyword *THINK* they come in 100 and 20 ft spools. Very NIFTY!!! Anything else??

    like along, the side of a road, used in marking
    a site, for construction???

    Well, FLAGGING TAPE!!!!! I used that on my last shawl, and I LOVE IT, honestly dont know if I'll ever go back to ribbon again!! It can be a little fragile, at times, but when putting it on, double the length of it, so it's folded at the top, and so it on that way. That way, it's double the strength. Plus, it's HEAVY. So, it sways REALLY good. But, this is just MY opinion. Oh' yeah, my shawl is double sided, two different colors, OFF THE HOOK!!! lol PLus, flagging tape comes in really BRIGHT colors!!!! PM me if you got any questions!!! Or just post a reply here. Well, gotta run.

    I used the crochet hook before. I switched to the needle. The hook left big holes and sometimes made the material snag or run.
    When you use a needle, make sure the eye is not too big or you can run into the same thing. Also, I don't use the darning needles if I can get something else. They have a dull point and can also cause problems.

    Thanks, for the help.
    I am moving along rather slowly.
    But, beginning to get the hang of it.

    Hope it is ready for the pow-wow in
    Minden, La.

    Back in the day....Aye. I used to use a Tatting Needle. It's a really itty bitty crochet needle. Shoot anymore I would just take some sewers helper stuff that is sticky on both sides, put my fringe on it then pin the sewers helper/fringe down to the shawl and sew away. That is a whole lot faster. Especially if you are using flat fringe. If it is chainette style then yah use the crochet needle/hook thingy's.

    When tying on individual fringes, I use a tapestry needle. You can also use a yarn needle, anything with an eye big enough. I've heard of people using a crochet hook but have never tried that. I punch the holes into the shawl material with an awl then thread the needle through. I use a simple overhand knot to secure my fringes.

    PLease help me.

    I am trying to add fringe, to a new shawl.

    I am having trouble, getting the fringe,
    thru the material. Do you use a needle,
    as if sewing it, and then removing the
    needle. and then make the knot.

    Also, I don't undertand the "knot",
    I should tell you::: I have 5 thumbs,
    on each hand, [Just kidding]

    i seen.......

    I once saw this chick from CANADA with fring that looked like she cut a trash bag, It was black, and that stuff was just floating not flying like others, it didn't look heavy enough. It went good with her sequened material shawl thoiugh. But thats just my opinion.

    Amanda Big Mountain does. Her outfits are really bright and her ideas and things all go together. I like her and her sisters imaginations. But I wouldn't use it because I don't think it would swing well or flow good. Jut my 2 cents. However I like the way she has used it.

    You guys have got me thinking! So what about using flagging tape? Or does that look too raggedy? That also looks like it might be kinda fragile.

    There's this stuff at party city, or prob. most party supply stores. Its the shiny table skirts, or the curtains. They come in the metallic colors, and are long, tinsel like fringe, but not all stringy,they are thicker. They also come already attatched at the top. I've seen some girls here with that as hair ties, but they cut the bottom of the ribbons so that they arent' so long. I have seen a couple with it on their shawls as well.
