I needed a long rawhide cord for the powder horn, so I could hang it with the old family musket. So I went off to AC Moore, a big craft store.
While looking through 87 rows of craft supplies for rawhide, I made a wrong turn in Albuquerque and ended up in the knitting section.
Boy, howdy, there sure are a lot of different sorts of yarn. Colors, textures, sizes. There are clearly a lot of folks who knit.
But I found my rawhide. Now I'm trying to figure out whether to use a single loop, or get fancy and braid several strands before tying it to the horn. I don't have any idea how people used to carry their power horns - if anyone has any better idea, let me know.
