I love the San Francisco airport...they often have mini exhibits to view while waiting to board a plane.
Imagine my surprise when I saw this exhibit on sailor knotting ! I had seen one of the finest examples of knotting a few weeks prior to this trip and it had stayed on my mind.
While on ships, sailors got creative with their spare time and developed the art of macramé into an art form.
They would tie the knots over wine bottles, boxes and even the ship's wheel!
Lamp Shades Etc. Those teeny knots called to me from across the room.
