Craft Book Challenge Week 12: Getting Knotty

As of midnight last night, I had no idea what craft book I was going to dig into this week. I just wasn't feeling inspired by anything.

Pinterest to the rescue. Knotted pillows? I'm in.

The only knotting book I have in my stash is The Arco Book of Useful Knots. Useful is not always pretty.

I checked my other books and found a chapter on rope crafts in Martha Stewart's Encyclopedia of Crafts and instructions on how to knot a monkey's fist in The Button Maker.

I'm getting knotty this week. I'm also traveling. I'll let you know where I am tomorrow.



  1. Hi,

    I came across your blog through your guestpost at Craftionary. I love that you have such an awesome challenge. I really like to have a list of goals I want to achieve...but don't seem to have the same will-power as you! If you would like to come and follow along with my current challenges (starting a book group, running 5km, raising money for charity, learning to sew, getting 100 followers....) then I would love to have you.

    I am definitely following on via GFC and Pinterest.

    Happy Crafting

    1. Thanks, Rosie. Challenge is what keeps life interesting.

  2. Oh my goodness! That pillow is so cute! Have you tried making one yet? I would love to know how it worked out. Was it fairly easy?? ~Heather @

    1. I know, it's such a neat design. I'm still in the experimentation stage.


Tell me what you think!
