The Final Frontier in Maedeup

This final session of maedeup is preparing us for the test. We are taking all the knots we have learned, perfecting them and incorporating them into larger, more complex knots like these three knots. The one above we did started in class on Saturday and I finished it today.

I still have a long way to go until my knots are perfect but my teacher is thrilled that I've stuck with it and she is very proud of me.

This was the knot we did the first week of class.

I had a pretty uneventful ride into Seoul (not that I'm complaining) until the subway. Across from where I was sitting was a lone seat. At the next stop, a husband and wife entered the subway car. The wife immediately went for the empty seat only to be shoved out of the way by her husband. He took the seat and she stood in front of him without saying a word. I don't know what her expression was at that point, they were directly in front of me. After about 5 stops, the seat next to him opened up and she promptly sat down. I was then in clear view of the venomous looks directed at her husband. After another 4 stops, he got up and took her arm and they left the subway car.

I was so outraged for her and I'm glad that for once I kept my mouth shut and stayed out of it. If it were me ,I would have exited the next subway stop and left him on his own. Lucky for me, my husband would never treat me in that manner.

I can't imagine tolerating that. I would have kicked the SOB!

Becky, your knots are stunning! I'm really getting worried for you with the book. I can't imagine HOW you're going to explain how to do this... Your former producer thinks you should work with light and dark cord to show contrast.... Are you thinking about that yet??? LOL!

I wish you were here!!! I would have loved to see how you would have reacted.

Don't worry, the knots in the book are the most simple. The knots are stepped out in a light and dark color to show contrast. You taught me well.

The next book could have these knots. Hmmmm, I hope there will be another book and another...
