It has been a while since I have been able to sit down and craft or post. Always on the hunt for something new a coworker of mine recently mentioned that she was looking for a weighted Monkey Fist Knot to use as a door stopper. Here is the end result. I used an eight inch styrofoam ball that I cut in half, carved out the center then sealed a large rock into the recess. I then used 5/8" diameter Manilla rope. The surprising part for me was that it took about 70 feet of rope to completely wrap the ball.
