Back to basics...
The Yosemite Bowline, tied snap.

A useful classic, and the basis for a whole family of knotcraft.

My wife found this knotty plaque at the shops today.
It reads "Binding friendship forever togetherness trust enjoyment happiness laughter understanding peace unity goodwill the key to life is live". It's now hanging in our kitchen.

Tasty knot #knotcraft #ropeaccess

New one. Knotcraft juxtaposes found images of knots (sailing, fishing, ornamental) from how-to manuals with ink and watercolor drawings of invented knots. Includes an excerpt from an essay on "knot-writing" and knots used in magic. ✨➰ Risograph-printed in an edition of 75. #Knotcraft #risograph

The one handed Gangsta clove hitch.

Don't blink!! I was taught this by a Dorset tree monkey a few months ago. Love it.

Permission to build a rope stash right there! Beautiful new book: Des Pawson's Knot Craft & Rope Mats. Inspired to make my brother in law a rope mat for his boat...

I've just started work on the macramé bay's handles. I would have finished it three days ago, but CherryLeafyCrafts got its first order which had to be rushed out, so the bag for sidelined. I'm glad to be able to work on the bag again.

Today I discovered macramé, a craft that involves knotting string in various ways to produce decorative and useful items. This is the beginning of a macramé tote bag. Since this is a practice version, I'm using simple jute twine, but I hope to make a version of it out of cloth yarn at some point. Bags made in this way are particularly useful due to their versatility; their shape can change so drastically depending on what is put in them that they can be used to carry almost anything. They're also surprisingly strong. Also, they can be made out of pretty much anything that won't break easily and is available in long strips; they can be made from twine, string, yarn, cloth strips, raffia, and so on. This is a great way to use old twine or thin rope that might just be lying around in your shed, or repurpose old clothes you can't donate (just cut them into long strips and you're good to go), or even things like newspapers if you feel like trying your hand at making your own paper twine.

Hopefully, these bags, along with other macramé items, will make their way into the shop in the forseeable future.
