Hi there... uh, i've come across a lil variation move for the leg wraps which i've never seen before (it's actually kinda simple [real easy] but i've been told it looks good smile)
Upon doing the 'alternate leg wrap thing' {so hard to explain - i hope u know what i mean}.... wrapping the one poi forwards over your leg while wrapping the other backwards over the other leg.
Aha... then while doing this normal move you just kinda... step forward, more like a lunge (lifting your knees and completing the wrap as your foot hits the ground again)

Does it make sense!?
I would like someone to tell me what they think (if they've ever tried it and that i'm just being normal)
biggrin

Posted:nice. walking and legwrapping together are lots of fun. are you saying you step forward with the leg that's wrapped from the back or from the front (or does it matter)? you might also play with turning as you step if you can figure out when to start unwrapping each leg to make it work. i <3 wraps (now that i can do more of them).

Posted:don't forget about crossing.. Step forward with your left while you wrap your right poi around your left thigh, throw a bicep wrap in with your left poi if you want to keep it even, or just do a simple twirly flourish to kill time until your leg is free to be wrapped again... I was just playing with these patterns earlier today
