A small gallery of knotworks
It's mostly slight variants on this design, but there are bracelets and completely different wall hangings thrown in as well (http://bbs.zhongguojie.org/thread-53718-1-1.html).

Analyzing the knots that proteins tie themselves into
I have clearly not been paying attention, because I didn't know that mathematicians had named a class of knots, "Gordian".

Interesting survival bracelet on steroids
Somehow I just can't see the sewing needle and/or exacto blade not working their way free to cut/stab/bite you, eventually.  But then, I'm probably just pessimistic, having never worn one...

I've had a few people asking me how I made my paracord bracelet, which I have 22 unique items crammed into, so I decided to make a new one and break down all the details. Here's a quick view of eve...

Well, most of the body is wrapped and not knotted at all, but you can certainly see the intent to create a knotted object (http://bbs.zhongguojie.org/thread-53697-1-1.html)

Macramé tree of life with a swing!
Cheesy or perfect touch.  You be the judge (http://bbs.zhongguojie.org/thread-53691-1-1.html).

A quick update from Maker Faire 2015
Bay Area +Maker Faire that is.  I still have +Vancouver Mini Maker Faire in less than a month.  This is just a quick update, because apparently Comcast ('net "provider" where I'm staying) doesn't play well with my websites so I can't update until I get home or at least a hotel with better 'net.  As usual, it's been interesting and inspiring.  I've met many interesting people who have never heard of the IGKT, including scouts and such.  Lots of people with diverse reasons to be interested in knots including a few I directed to +TyingItAllTogether for his alternate knotty activities.  It's been a blast so far.  I haven't been taking names, but I have been handing out my "flyers" (http://knottynotions.com/makerfaire/2015-info-handout) with instructions for those interested in joining the guild to go to the guild website.

A nice ice flower knot/round brocade design
Based on the difference in backgrounds and tassel materials, I'm guessing that this is a club all working on the same design and not the work of a single hand doing a colour series (http://bbs.zhongguojie.org/thread-53728-1-1.html).

Two very nice knot tapestries
I particularly like what they did with the middle of the central pan chang (http://bbs.zhongguojie.org/thread-53727-1-1.html).  Clearly not wall hangings as they're complete objects laid flat for photography, probably destined to be framed...

Bay Area Maker Faire 2015 Report
Friday was Media preview day and after DH drove like a champ for a day and a half, we made it after all.  Sadly, when the Make Magazine reporter came to interview me, my finely tuned thoughts about knot tying as related to making flew right out of my head.

Saturday was busier, of course, but Sunday was a true madhouse.  This year, the family saw the Faire on Friday and Saturday so I wandered from time to time on Sunday while they tended the booth.  Next time I should try to see more Friday/Saturday so I can be more present on Sunday.  At one point I wandered off and returned only to find the booth so packed it took 5 minutes for the crowd to clear enough for me to get back behind the table.

I found Ellie of KnotMaker Survival Gear and sent her the Guild's regards.  Even though I thought I had entirely covered the Faire, I never found the Freakin' Sweet Knots booth.

Confusingly photographed instructions for the 4 petal ice flower knot
But maybe it's not the photographs themselves so much as how they were cropped and put together (http://bbs.zhongguojie.org/thread-53689-1-1.html).  Also it'd be really helpful to have a finished product picture...
