Here's a little something I did the other night. Using tarred seine I covered the handle end of a letter opener with a serving of the same cord to add some bulk and then added a grafting. Added a 5px3b tripled at the fore and 7px6b doubled aft to cover the ends of the grafting.

dewildeman - I like those matts, they look great.  I wonder where a good source for old climbing rope is?

Hi Scott. Looks like you got a two for one... A knife handle and letter opener handle... with one tarred line... Both look great. I like the grafting on the letter opener.

Hello!

Please Excuse my tardiness in answering your questions. Thank you for your compliments my knots.

1.  I'm weaving my knots out of the flat cable with two cores. Its cross-section resembles a figure lying eight or dumbbell. I do not know its English name. We call it soutache.

2.  To preserve the shape of my knots, I apply glue (on the tip of the needle). I usually glue weaving on the outer contour and inner openings my knot.

Forgive me my English.

Tatian,
your English works for me, so far.  ;)

Looks like piping that seamstresses use to accentuate their creations.

May I ask what type of glue you use?

JD,
I love those little acorn baskets!
I'll have to make some for each of my fingertips. *Smile*

I wonder how one could make the heart shape and have the cord exit on the same side?

I use two types of glue.

1. Colorless glue "Moment" (Henkel), I glued interlacing lines.

2. Glue "Contact" (etiltsianakrilat) I put on the ends of cord slice, so as not to disheveled winding.

Making tools and decorating them is always fun.
Here is a pricker handle for fine line tied up with two different cords.
Very comfortable.
