Does anyone want me to make an instructable on how to make string out of (stinging) nettle plants (or similar)? Answered

 This depends on what sort of plants I can find around my house and how much revision and coursework I have to wade through.

They die off then grow back. Now isn't the best time of year for fresh stringy-plants.

Um... Yeah, I'd be happy to see such an instructable, if you feel up to making one.

BTW, I noticed these in the "related" column

https://www.instructables.com/id/Making-hemp-type-jewelry-cord/

Before getting started look over these ibles first.  You might just decide that these have covered the topic already.  If so, you've saved yourself some work!

I point out these links not to discourage you, just to show what has been added to Instructables already.

Nettles are well-out of season for me, but I would like to see that (for next year)
