Paracord Projects | Paracord Projects Instructions, Videos, Reviews, Paracord Lanyard and Supplies Adding Paracord to Water Bottles and another Paracord Can Koozie... Here are a couple of examples of adding paracord to water bottles. A 25 foot length was used for the one in a 'whipping' pattern on the aluminum water bottle. And a 40 foot length was used in a woven pattern on the white stainless steel water bottle. Both started off with coiling the cord around the bottles, with the starting end just held in place with a rubber band and later tucked to finish. The 'whipping'(snaking) version, an example is seen in Geoffrey Budworth's 'The Complete Book of Knots', is easily zigzagged and looped around a couple of coils on each end of the paracord coiled wraps, and tucked to finish. The woven version resembles 'grafting' type knot work, as seen in Stuart Grainger's 'Creative Ropecraft', but is instead a single length of cord. I used a Perma-Lok Jumbo Lacing Needle to feed the paracord over/under as I worked, as well as a pair of hemostats/forceps. Here's a woven paracord can koozie, done with a 25 foot length of cord.

Quiet Friday: Rag Rug Finishing – Warped for Good How many people get to have a handmade article right under their feet? You come in from the world, with your feet dusty and weary; you look down, and the rug says, “Welcome home.” After the weaving is complete, the only thing left is finishing. For rags rugs, that means securing the warp ends, and finishing the ends with fringe or stitched hems. I prefer the look of hems over fringe, so my rugs usually have turned-under hems (occasionally, I do a bound hem, but I’ll save that for another time). The end is the beginning. Rosepath rag rugs being unrolled and cut from the loom. Step 1. Step 2. Step 3. Step 4. Step 5. Rosepath rag rug, hemmed and ready, with the look of a breath of fresh air. Let’s call this one the “Welcome Home” rug. May weary feet find your home to be a welcoming place. Still being finished, Karen

News - #BBCtrending: 14 year-old's clever poem knocks Twitter backwards 27 February 2014Last updated at 15:03 ET By BBC Trending What's popular and why A poem written by a teenager has been retweeted 120,000 times. When Derek Nichols tweeted a picture of a poem written by his little brother Jordan, he was hoping to bring it to a wider audience, but was not expecting it to go viral. On Wednesday morning he wrote: "Read this... My 14 year old brother wrote this...

Animated Knots Tutorials By Grog Starting To Net | More than Fish and Hammocks To start netting, you should have 3 things: The string you will be making the net from,your mesh stick,and a foundation of some sort. The foundation (which is what you attach your first row of loops to) is not strictly required, but it is much easier to start with one than without as it provides an anchor/tension point for your netting. To Begin Your Net: Bring the working end of your string up in front of your foundation, down behind it, and then to the front underneath. Bring the working end of your string across, in front of the tail end, and up behind the foundation. Bring the working end of your string over the foundation, and back down the front, making sure to go under the portion of working string that is crossing in front of everything. Tighten the knot. Place your mesh stick parallel to your foundation, and just below your first knot.
