One of the reasons I have a “no gifts” policy is I don’t want to be pressured into posting on things that just show up. When a copy of “Modern Macramé: 33 stylish projects for your handmade home” arrived my first thought was “uh oh” and I put it aside. Macramé makes me think of belts my older sisters made one summer with double rings pinched from the local carousel. Then I spied this picture of a fabulous vest in May Numéro and did a double take—maybe macramé, the fine art of knotting—an age-old craft, is undergoing a renaissance.
“Modern Macramé” is fantastic—I’m inspired to make a wall hanging like the ones author and artist Emily Katz designs. She makes it look easy with photographs and step-by-step instructions on how to create everything pictured in her beautiful book. Happy knotting!
