    Mystic Knotwork Best of By Yankee MagazineMystic Knotwork won Yankee Magazine's Best of Connecticut Editor's Choice Award for 2019.

    “Knotwork is a book with no last page,” said the late Alton Beaudoin in a 1964 Yankee interview. He had not yet completed his masterpiece: a fancywork frame that hangs in the larger of two open-to-the-public workshops where grandson Matt and fellow artisans create expertly tied rope bracelets, wreaths, nautical wearables and home accents. Your purchases—and photos you share of Alton’s sennit frame, a five-year labor made with more than 110 miles of cordage—keep the story flowing.
