Summary, etc.: "Instructions and projects that celebrate the diverse beauty and creative possibilities of macramé and knots. Every day for a year, artist Windy Chien learned to tie a new kind of knot and then shared the results on Instagram--revolutionizing knot art and reinventing her life and career in the process. In The Year of Knots, Chien describes how her knot-making project led her on a path of discovery. The book combines projects, tutorials, and transformative personal stories, all aimed at inspiring readers to make knotting--and creativity in general--part of a meditative daily practice. The knots in the book are gorgeously documented step-by-step for the many knot- and macramé-obsessed readers out there wanting to try it themselves. Knotted projects abound: a necklace, a dog leash, along with wall hangings and a hanging light. At the heart of the story is the simple, empowering idea that a single year is all the time you need to make a life-changing creative leap."--provided by publisher.
