A few nights ago I made an antler-bone needle by carving a tine down really fine and then boring a hole through it using an awl held in the flame of a candle.
Man what a task!
I'll bet those old precolumbian Indian women were always saying "now I wish there was a better way to make needles!"
I think it's kinda cool but it needs to be a bit smaller/pointier.
ETA: I've since learned that there's easier ways to make needles, by breaking open leg bones and such. Perhaps I'll try to find a carcass since I don't have a permit this year...
You will not find the American People easy prey!
