Getting Knotty

I've been restringing all my Roman shades with drapery cord.  That means I have a lot of 8 foot long or so pieces of nylon rope that is just begging to become something else.  I have several books on knotting that I got from my great uncle and have long been intrigued by some of the more decorative knots that could become door mats or key fobs.  I decided yesterday to pull out one of the books and give knotting a whirl.  I found a Chinese button knot with good directions, twisted, twirled, over-undered, pulled and prodded, and found myself with a cool little knot.  The rope was a little fuzzy from its previous use, but knot bad for a first try!

  1. Neat! But are you sure you want to be that knotty?
