My fascination with string and cord continues. So very many years ago I was into the macrame thing. Now I prefer the micro-macrame: (example below is NOT mine)
Well, okay, because I can use my beads, too.
And I love knots. Right now I'm playing with covering bottles - not necessarily with macrame-style netting and such, but with variations on the Turk's Head: different Turks with varying leads and bights, Gaucho, Herringbone, etc.
(Again, the projects are not mine.)
And moving on to tool handles:
Somehow this is all related to crocheting, knitting, beading, and weaving.
I haven't met a cord that I didn't immediately envision how I might manipulate it.
I suppose there are worse things.
