I am finishing up my latest piece.  Here is hand knotted 14 inch bottle with cork 190 feet of line 15 hours of knotting.


Down to the bottom now what to do.


Here is a closer look at the intricacy of the knot work.


An here it is all finished, again 14 inch bottle with cork 190 feet of line 15 hours of knotting.

Wow, that's really beautiful!  Macrame is such an under-appreciated craft.

This is GORGEOUS!! You really are patient. I can see myself throwing that bottle (along with what's sure to be tangled rope) right across the room after 10 minutes!

Really impressive stuff. I hope we get to see more!!

You don't see too much macrame lately.  Now that you worked so hard on this, what will you do with it?  I'd hate to give it away if after all that work, if it was mine.
