WIPW - Beads and Knots

There has been just a tiny bit of going forward on the

Crazy for Crazy

project for Work In Progress Wednesday.

I completed this before a nasty cold put a stop to further progress.
There is a pile of pink beads of various sizes,

and on top of the lace I added a number of braided knots.
These were store-bought and on the pack there was no indication of what type of knots they are.
Do you know? Are they Chinese knots, Celtic knots, Monkey Fists or Djellaba knots from Morocco? Maybe Jenni of Jacaranda knows? Or anyone else? If you have any information, I'd be happy to read your comment.

Beautiful work.

I think they are Turk's Head Knots, but I'm really not sure at all. I like the way the pile of beads brings a bit of height to the panel.

Pamela said...

Nice additions. Sorry, I don't know what kind of knots they are. Hope you are feeling better.

the block looks lovely with these embellishments. Take care of your health.

Thank you for your comment and good wishes. I am getting better.

Queeniepatch said...

Thanks. These knots are tricky, I don't know what the difference is between them.

Queeniepatch said...

Thank you, Rachel. I had to look up Turk's Head Knot as I had never heard of it. There are too many to choose from!

Queeniepatch said...

Thank you.

Whatever the knots are called, I like them.

Janie said...

I agree, beautiful additions.
The pink knots or roses look like something you've done recently, I'll have to
look back and see.

Queeniepatch said...

They add a bit of height, structure and colour to the block.

I think you mean the Rambling Rose Stitch http://queeniepatch.blogspot.jp/2017/11/sunday-stitch-school-lesson-42-rambling.html
but actually these are knots made of stiff nylon and look like little balls. I bought them long ago and did not keep the packaging so don't know what they are called or where they were made.

Je dirais également Turk's head knot (bonnet turc en français)

Thank you Mattia.

This is what Mattia said: I would also say Turk's head knot (Turkish hat in French)
