    Looks great! Would love to try that myself, but I have no idea how to even begin!

    Looks good! I've kinda turned into a lanyard making junky in the last year. I probably have 25 lanyards that I'm not sure what I'll do with.

    Nice, but looks like you might want to invest in a pad for your thumb. Ouch!!

    Keith- those look good. I plan to make a thin two drop next.

    Golddogs- that is not from the lanyard, but the outside of my palms are pretty raw from seating a million knots.

    Its easy, buy a spool of paracord and watch a bunch of youtube videos. There are really only a few basic knots. It will take a few tries to get them to look as good as the OP. My daughter made a nice leash and my next project is rifle slings. We made a few short tethers with carabiners on them for Transmitters too.

    I just watched a 3 part YouTube video and followed the instructions closely. As long as you seat every knot it looks good. I made a bracelet a while back and then used it up on a backpacking trip a week later. I basically have no experience and I still think it's turning out ok.

    I made a bird strap a while back. Watched a couple youtube videos, it was pretty simple. A Sportsmans warehouse close to me has a pretty good color selection in 50 and 100 ft rolls. Plan on making a shotgun sling but never got around to it yet.

    I used Paracord Authority and got a 1000ft roll of an olive drab digital camo and then some other 100ft miscellaneous colors. They were slow, I got the impression it was a business in someone's basement and they didn't have a lot of inventory. The pricing was good and the cord is good. There are many places though so I'd shop around for best price.
