I decided to practice my macrame skills. I had not done any for at least 15 years and when I had done it before, I was just using square knots and half knots. Well, I decided to try to make an owl pendant. It uses mainly half hitches. I used square knots and half knots on the cord leaving spaces to show the black holding cord. I think it looks ok for a first try. My owl is just a little lop-sided. Instead of a branch, I used a piece of flattened copper wire for the perch. I hope to post some more later this week using different cord. For this one I just the old waxed cord that holds the knots well. The problem with it is that it feels sticky and has a tendancy to look ashy if using dark cord. My next attempt will use cottolin, which is a blend of cotton and linen.
