    Thanks Sean. I'm having a hard time picturing what you described. Is it invisible just because it's the same color and follows the rope's strands? I do like to follow the ropes strands instead of just stitching straight down the rope, but didn't know if that was okay to do? Is it important that the stitches go straight through the rope or can they be at 45 degree angles?

    Hard to explain I guess, stitch should go straight thru the rope, not at angles

    Not quite the NICCS. My stitching doesn't go very far down the rope, not sure if that is a big deal? Brocky, I'm just asking about the lock stitching (white thread) you might have to squint to see it.

    Sorry about that Brock, I was teasing about not being able to see the excellent job you did. I really like how it fits right in with the braids. I would think that it would be enough to lock the core and cover together.
