My musings into macrame continue...
I have been working on my own design of this iconic macrame icon.
I wanted to create a small subtle version, using a greater range of knotwork that I have not used previously.
It has been an arduous process, lots of unpicking of my knots and many trials, on gauging length of twine, size and overall aesthetic appeal!So far I'm pleased but now want to inject more colour into the knotwork, to create visual contrast.
I tried using wooden beads for eyes but they made the owl too beady...a little unnerving (The Mona Lisa effect)

If you're inclined to offer any advice or feedback,
I would greatly appreciate it!
