DIY Judaica, Round II

Or, In Which I can count to 13 and tie a square knot.  Which is totally harder than it looks.

I have tzitzit!  They are fluffy and beautiful and not as ridiculously much bigger than the old ones as I thought they’d be.  Pictures below…

The photo quality makes the knotwork harder to make out; I promise it’s not quite *that* fuzzy.  I have enough yarn to definitely make one more set for the homemade tallit whenever it’s done, and I think I’ll pick up some more of that fiber while it’s available in case I ever want to make more.  It’s really ideal.
