Another friend, another Monkey Fist

Monkey Fist
The core is an old golf ball.
Monkey Fists are turning out to be the most-requested item from friends. After seeing this Monkey Fist, I was asked for one by a Packer fan. I had some yellow/green paracord, so knocked this one out in a couple hours on a Saturday. I really like the Fishtail Knot strap on this one.

Usually, I try to get the working ends to all meet at the same point so I can go immediately into whatever braid I am using for the strap, but this was proving difficult for some reason on this day.

Old age, I suppose.

Anyway, I still like the way it turned out.As a bonus, I finally got to use one of my new tags I designed. When time permits, I will upload some pics of them. I have gone the route of printing my own, and have about a dozen unique, humorous (hopefully!) catch-phrases, printed on a craft-like cardstock and tied to the piece with a thin strand of sisal.

I like 'em, and since I don't charge for my work, I don't particularly care if the recipient likes the tag! :-)
