We all have things around the house that just seem to multiply. In one woman’s case it was rope. Her husband competes in team calf-roping events so they had lots of rope. But, what can you do with old lariat ropes? Ron Wilson, director of the Huck Boyd National Institute for Rural Development at Kansas State University, says those old ropes have been transformed into elegant and rustic decorative such items such as baskets of various sizes, coaster sets, salt and pepper holders, napkin holders, crosses, lamps, and more. And, many of the items she creates have a sentimental value that’s priceless.
