Raise your hand if you made friendship bracelets from embroidery floss as a kid. I did, of course- I did just about every crafty thing a kid in my era could do.
(Some things never change.)

It comes in all sorts of colors, though I bought four to start with. And at that gauge, you wouldn’t believe how fast I can spit out a bracelet. Fifteen, twenty minutes, tops.
