More twists and turns

I have made a few more cords and braids. First a foray into plaited cords:



Then a bit of macrame for good measure. 1 is square knots, 2 is a piece of green leather and piece of pink raffia just knotted together at various intervals, 3 is a series of loose half hitches:


Then two more kumihimo braids, one very neat that is strong enough to hold a spiral shape of its own, and a second made of frayed fabric strips:


Finally my first attempt at tassels. The middle one turned out a bit fat and dumpy (and rather uneven but I have hidden that!). I rather like number three with its mix of variegated sock wool and gold thread:
