Yeah!






This is what 225m of twine, a dye bucket and some nice beads can be used for!
 
I think I would like to make another one!
All 1.75 m of her

Bit pleased with myself!

    1. It's the teal, which is softer than normal due to this type of twine!
      So pleased you like it! :)

    1. Gosh ages, just cutting up the twine and dyeing it took some time. To knot initially, is time consuming purely because your lumbering around the twine that can be really weighty. Once I hit my knot stride, I can do it quite quickly in 3 hr sittings!
      Overall I would say 25-30 hrs?
      Kinda of makes it to hard to price so it will stay on my wall for a bit ......oh dear ;)

  11. I feel the same way Dana, just when I feel I have no more knot to give, I reach a new stride! I can't wait to do another! I have a month left before I go back to work, should be able to fit it in! :)
