Rope is one of our current obsessions, but it’s also one of those items that will never leave my love list. It’s just a fantastic material, one of humanity’s greatest inventions. Rope owes all of its strength, durability and beauty to its structure. One simple knot can look as beautiful and graceful as many intricate layers of knots. I know I’m beginning to sound exactly like Portlandia‘s Jeff Goldblum, with his artisanal knot store, but I have a sincere love for and fascination with the beauty of rope, no matter how much of a hipster parody that might make me. We’ll be bringing you more rope and knot-related projects in the coming weeks, but first, I wanted to share some of our best DIY projects from the archives featuring rope, twine, knotting, knitting and the like. diy best of: rope projects diy best of: rope projects

Sitting on my dining room table, I currently have half a dozen projects in various states of doneness. Some involve vivisected computer parts, others will eventually be wearable and a few are just cool things I’ve ran across on the internet. I like doing things myself — I think the DIY bug is one of the best communicable diseases in the lifehack community. These eighty sites are the places I turn to when I’m trying to figure out how to accomplish any particular goal. Any time I’m facing a new project, I start searching for how-tos that will help me figure out how other people did similar things and how likely I am to finish the project with all ten fingers still intact. I’ve broken them up into a few different categories, just to help you narrow down what you might be looking for. 80 How-To Sites Worth Bookmarking - StumbleUpon
