great tie, try to put your dubbing picker in the loop and wipe a little varnish on it to keep from untwisting bud, I just started 3 strand overhand braiding the stuff instead of twisting... I also started starting the thread at the tip with the loop formed and ran the thread back, this will keep the twist in place better, its just wants to untwist when i do it opposite

MZ... Awesome job on this Red-wing, it looks like it could have come right off of Colin's site, and the vertical wing set is very cool.
