More packing strap turk's heads (probably)
The softball sized ceramic bead on my ginormo knot broke the last time I displayed it.  Something like these (http://bbs.zhongguojie.org/thread-55587-1-1.html) would be a fabulous substitute.... A shame there's no instructions...

Knotted Fauxhawk
I'm thinking with a little extra preparation, one might be able to do this solo...

Student lauded for macramé covered chair
I'm unclear as to why a graphic design student is doing macramé for school (as opposed to graphic design), but if everyone is enjoying it...  Still, I'm guessing that the string, whatever fibre content it is, dyed with food colouring is not going to be colour-fast...

Gorgeous if not very Celtic
at least to my eyes.  If you look at the strips on the topmost curve where the light is best, it does not look woven.  It looks like what would be weft is just laid on top and ... welded(?) into place.  I wasn't 100% that it's a knot at all, but I tied it and it's an overhand/trefoil.  8-)

Someone's knotting tools
With the bulk of the text embedded in images (http://bbs.zhongguojie.org/thread-55531-1-1.html), it's a long slog to translate that I doubt I'll get around to...  8(

Tie your shoes like a Ukranian
with the loose ends near your toes and the bow at the top tied with loops.  Wonder if this is really a cultural thing in the Ukraine...

Footwear lacing that fixes major conventional problems. No add-ons nor tools needed.

Needle thread and knot sculpture in Milan
Part of a 2 part sculpture, the other part being an enormous threaded needle with thread spiraling around it stabbed into the ground (that view also included in the main link).  This end appears to be an overhand knot tied in the 2 ends.  Here's another view (http://www.milandailyphoto.com/2014/11/needlethread-and-knot.html).
