Another cup of tea ?

Hi all,
As there isn't a forum for macrame I thought I would post it here, as it might be most appreciated.
I am about 2 years behind the ball since macrame has come back in fashion.
Just search Pinterest and etsy and you will be inundated  with new modern macrame!
I decided to give it a go and just used some doubled up yarn I had at home as I didn't want to spend any money on this project, because I didn't know if I could learn the knots.
But, with the help of youtube and an old book I had, away I went.
I never realised I loved tying pretty knots before and 2 days later I had this lovely wall hanging. Even my very modern teen, gave it the thumbs up Grin
Well, now I am more confident I have ordered some cotton rope and plan to make a very big piece for behind my bed head or my lounge. I might even try some dip dying...

uh, I am sure you both mean "dyeing", right? Grin

Dyeing would be fun; dying, not so much! Grin

I hope not!  I can't wait to see your future macrame creations!

Especially if you dye the cords...that would be wonderful!

It looks fantastic! It looks very classic and modern in white, but I agree that dip dyeing could look wonderful as well ^____^
