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.

 May Kiteman's Zeroth  Law be with you.

Law implies: YOU MUST POST.

I'm still waiting for that string... :D

Aren't they edible also?  If boiled or something.....

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

Thou shalt post.

I would like to see an instructable first on how to take the sting out of nettles.

OMG yes! that would be really funny!!!!!! but you should try it first!!!!!!!!!!

sounds cool

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

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.

Only if you post audio of the fabrication process...ouch...oW!....sh&^*^%, oWWWWW///Sonofab%$#chwhydidIvolunteerforthisible...OWWWW

Next, you could work on a poison ivy wreath for the alt_holidays;-)

People do / have done for thousands of years, they got over the ouch bit a while ago.

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