Strings and Cords

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.
