* climbing rope doormat

Posted on November 24th, 2010 by maitreya. Filed under Home and Garden.

Mark has been doing more crafting than I have lately.  He just finished this doormat woven from one of his decommissioned rock climbing ropes.


He followed these detailed instructions.  There was definitely still a lot of trial and error, though.  It’s been more or less done for a while now, but getting the tension even throughout so that it lies flat took a long time.  Mark’s verdict: “not worth the effort” but I think it’s pretty neat.
