  1. Great quote! The knot board is fascinating. There was a time when I could tie a dozen or so different knots. I wonder how many I could remember how to do right now?

  2. What an interesting display! I did macrame in the good old days, I loved knotting.
    I had a huge wall hanging I'd crafted. Very cool!
