I've always wanted to learn how to knot. I finally took a class, reading instructions is something I just have a really hard time with. I have to see it, feel it, play with it.... and do it about three times to *fix it in my memory. I think it's there now.The class homework was to do 150 knots and then, only then... make something!!. There are many ways to knot. I'm looking forward to all the fun that can comes with knotting. It's not just for peals..no, no, no ~ just wait.. :) These are orange and brown glass glowing beads on black silk thread with 14k gf closing.
