This book makes me want to take up knotting - Sacred Knots: Create, adorn, and transform through the art of knotting by Lise Silva Gomes. In her modern guide to knotting this self-taught fiber artist shares her journey from unwittingly collecting macrame pamphlets in thrift shops in 2012, to present day avant-garde knotting artist, teacher and author. Her reverence for the craft and it's variations bursts through the pages. Part 1, the basics, looks at the fundamentals of knotting. Learn about the tools, materials, knots and techniques. Part 2, the projects, use the skills you learned in Part 1 to make gorgeous pieces - from fabulous jewelry to wall hangings and more. Projects range in skill level and material costs. Part 3, the sacred, will inspire mindfulness in your creative practice. In this section you will find tools that will help you shape your own personal knotting practice. The complete table of contents is listed below. Knotting offers diverse possibilities. Is there a knotting practice unique to your background?

About the Author
Try the easy 4-step square knot from page 43. If you don't have a piece of cord find something else. I used butcher's twine.
