Two Months of Maedeup

This knot is comprised of the knot used in the bouquet below, but constructing three knots in a row.
The knots are getting quite difficult and I find the hardest part isn't learning the steps of the knot, but
the the tightening you must do finish the knot. I'm forever losing track of where I'm at in the tightening process only to end up with a mess. It was a frustrating week of practice for me and I even got so mad at the maedeup I sent it sailing across the room. Curt came home to one crabby Becky a few times this week.

But then you see what we made in class Saturday and the frustration has been forgotten. This took us about three hours to complete and our fingers were sore from all the work but to see what we had made left us in

This is a closeup of the necklace. We were so excited and proud of our work today that we went out to dinner at Dos Tacos. Curt and I had been there several times but my Korean girlfriends had never been there. We had a delicious meal and the girls were surprised at all the Westerners there. In fact, that was practically all you saw there.

It was pouring rain when we left, we didn't think we needed an umbrella so we went to a really cute coffee house for coffee. It was so warm inside and the coffee was delicious. We ended up talking until about 11:00 p.m. then Curt and I caught a cab back to Suwon. It was a wonderful day!

Thanks Helena! This Saturday we are making a flower and it is multilayered and looks quite difficult.
