Did you know that Haiku is a traditional form of Japanese Poetry that consists of 3 lines and 17 syllables?  The first and last line need to have 5 syllables and the middle line needs to have 7 syllables.   Do you like our Haiku?  

Our newest tutorial is made of 3 different bracelets combining our three favorite knotting techniques.. laddering, micro-macrame and herringbone.  It also uses 5 different types of Chinese knotting cord :  0.4MM, 0.5MM, 0.8MM/1MM, 1.4MM and the 3MM Flat!
