Here's a little more from Michelle: "Fascinated with the beauty of nautical knots, I decided to teach myself how to make gorgeous mats. I do them with a twist though---I take old sailing and climbing rope and clean it up and recycle it to make them. They make the most delightful pieces of art that may be used as hotpads/trivets or floor mats. It is so much fun to use my hands to create such fun 'whimseas' as I call them that always remind me of the salt air and keep the tradition of sailor's knotting alive"
Keyrings, $10 each
