Chinese Knots

on Monday, January 11, 2010

I want to learn how to make decorative knots.
I requested a few books from the library.

                                The Chinese knots are so beautiful and have an interesting history.

My husband helped me set up a knot board.
I gathered my supplies.

I worked on my first knot.

It is harder than it looks.

My first knot!

I need to get some different cording.

It is very fun to do.

It might be awhile before I am knotting

and making tassels
like the professionals.

I want to make decorative knots for my prayer ropes.

I also want to learn how to make Celtic knots.
I think they are very similiar.

I found the red satin boxes at the thrift store.
Perfect place to store my knotting supplies.
