knots

Fobs, fobs, and more fobs

I have made a few colourful key fobs from time to time using a series of crown knots. Usually I tie them using four strands, but recently I went a bit mad and tied a six-strand crown knot sinnet. A bit fancy just for a couple of outhouse keys perhaps, but if you can’t give your own shed a bit of bling then it’s a great shame, isn’t it?

And here’s one a tied a while back when I was first getting the hang of those fiendish Turk’s Head knots. This one has a large wooden bead inside it and I somehow managed to conceal it completely (which is what you should do).

I’m now just getting round to trying some “monkey’s fist” knots, with a view to doing more key fobs and also making a cat toy with a concealed catnip ball for Smoky to chase around. Progress updates will follow ‘as and when’. Best perhaps not to hold your breath 🙂
