My hobby with decorative and useful knot work.
Nice work on the turksheads, beautiful knots that I've always struggled with. Your doing really nice work. I was wondering where you got your 1mm cord? I am also a member of KHWW and its great to see you on there. -Colin
Thanks. I got the 1mm cotton braiding cord at walmart. It's in the craft section on cards with three colors/12 yds each. Sometimes a color is not a continuous length though, it may be knotted to another length for the total and you wouldn't see it until you've started taking it off the cord.
Nice pen and a very nice knot.
How did you tie off/bury the ends? On something non-nylon I usually end up supergluing the ends together, or else just burying them and having the cinch them back up at intervals. Just wondering if there's a more advanced technique I'm not aware of.
Could you tell me a good source for 1mm, 2mm cordage?Paul
Walmart has short lengths of 1mm cotton braiding cord, and I've found nylon braided cord on ebay in the 2mm size, sold by a seller named mowfugger. R&W rope sells some called 'Handy Hundred' cord, in different colors/sizes, but I do not know of a distributor, so you could look them up(Google) and call/email them.
I just trimmed and tucked the ends with the cotton cord. It's held up fine since I made it. I have used super glue on the cotton cord occasionally for more permanent applications.
