It was not to do nothing that I was away from the blog all those months this year. You won't hear from me any detail about the absence, but it involved a lot of stress. If you are glad I'm back, with no questions asked, that is unconditional readership, and you are a gem.
One of the things I did to de-stress this past summer was to make jewelry. It was a nice change from working with fiber, and who wants to work with yarn in the heat of the summer!
"Pearl-knotting" was one of the types of jewel-making that I did. It can be very relaxing and soul-healing.
Pearl knotting is easy to learn. If you are interested check out the great videos about it online.
Hand-knotting beads has a nicely paced rhythm, like a slow foxtrot or a waltz.
Best of all, when Mr. Cha Cha asks what I'm doing, it's so fun to say "Knottin', Honey."
