knots & twine

thanks for all your kind and inspiring comments about my project!  your enthusiasm makes me even  more excited about it, so thanks ... 

these are just a few pictures of my friend ying tying knots. i thought her hands and the knotting looked beautiful together.  

the stringing went great except we ran into one (big) hiccup.  after threading a bit, we recalculated and we don't have enough hemp cord.  i estimated 5,000 ft. and bought 10,000 just to be safe.  we now need double that.  might anyone have a suggestion for a place to get hemp twine? we need lots and in the colour white.  i think i may also try to find household or fishing twine, but if you have any other suggestions, i'd love to hear.
