2012 The Year of the Knot

 Okay, I might be late, but I am declaring 2012 as the Year of The Knot!  
It began at the end of 2011.  
I learned how to make a friendship bracelet.   A series of knots.

 Then John Bead released a whole group of hemp strings.  I learned a few more knots.
 Okay more than a few.
 I couldn't stop.

I love a craft that is low tech,  Just me, some string and a series of knots. 
I was thinking I might be on to something.  A new craft that I could take anywhere.

And now KUMIHIMO! 
The Japanese art of the knot. 
I am venturing down a path to learn this ancient art form. 
John Bead is bringing in all the supplies. 
I have books en route from Amazon. 
Google searches have begun. 
Let me know if you are a Kumihimo fan too!
