in knots

No, my stomach is not in knots but my eye keeps spotting knotty things that seem spot on for Summer. Knots and braids and jaunty nautical touches seem to have roped me in and caught my attention.

Simple knots, twists, braids are calling me to set sail. How about you, are you in knots over knots?

I always wanted to learn how to tie knots. I saw some great leather trim at mjtrim in nyc, that would be fabulous all tied up in cool knots. Thanks. --G

I love them too! They are perfect for a beach home. Have you seen that nautical knotted door stop?

Having just mastered a braid on myself, I'm not longer tied up in knots! And I'm off to beach for a little r & r and may even go for a sail...

I never really thought about knots much before. I do like hanamusubi, Japanese decorative knots:
