finishing off knots
My go-to methods of finishing a 4 strand project.  Cut the ends close and hide them in the knot  - or leave the ends alone or comb them out in a fringe.  All knots shown started with 2 strands of 3' long cord.

Very nice Struktor!

Now, if only the strands can be arranged to come out of the top.  ?

I believe that Groundline was looking for this. Do you have a method to share?

I made this key ring fob for a friend. I will have to make another since he wants to use this as a bell rope for a small bell.
key ring fob/small bell rope
3 1/2" long, cotton twine



Same technique - two colors - obverse and reverse sides

Couple of small plant hangers - lighter one in 1mm cotton twine; the other in hemp.

This is the sewing around the grommet I laid up, for my curtains.

The curtain tie.  First picture is the whole thing. At one end, there is a 74-face globe knot (Thanks, CUrchin for that tutorial!), tied around a golf ball.  At the other end, a loop tied into a lanyard/diamond knot, and hitched over with 3-strand cockscombing.  In the middle, is a doubled longhorn knot (Thanks, JD Lenzen for the awesome tutorial on tying this one!).  I need to re-dress this one, and either stitch it a little more solidly in place, or glue it, I think.  The weight of the golf ball is pulling the knot out of shape.

Two ceiling fall pulls.  Both of them were tied similarly, using #36 bank line and some cotton twine.  One one, I used the cotton twine as the core worked the bankline around it; the other, I did the opposite.  Now, if I can only learn to remember which one controls the light and which one controls the fan, I'll be set!!

Finally, a couple of JD Lenzen's "Endless Falls Azulejo" sennits for key fobs.  Some time ago, we lost the (only) key to our little Spitfire.  Couldn't even order a replacement from the manufacturer, since they don't quite exist anymore - at least, not as an automobile company.  So, we got a complete new ignition switch, and I opted to tie big bulk bright (and, in the case of one, reflective) key fobs to make it a little harder to lose again.

Oh yeah, up above those is a little monkey fist that I use to tuck my keys under my belt - easily acessible, and keeps my pocket free for access to important things - like my pocket knife.

some nice work there!  I just threw one of those star knots around one of my inkwells, though I made it a bit tight, with too soft a lay.  When I get some of Mikko's hard laid stuff, I'll give that another go and see if it looks better!
