You are the Knot King. The walls look fantastic. At the top of this page the 201 knots looked like you touched them up with A/I, but when finished the "splotches" around the knots have gone away. Did you blend them away by using A/I or chalks/alcohol over the completed wall? I'm trying to figure out the sequence of distressing, knoting, staining, etc.

You need to be careful , Karl , because being "Knot King" is just a letter away from your true calling ..."Knit King" . And you wouldn't want that to be widely ...king known , would you!

Looking forward to see this kit built the " Allison" way ,

Thanks for the comments Jerry, Marty, Mike and Nick.

Mike that pic is of the back/inside of the boards after I had sanded the picks flush ready for application. The sequence I used this time was...
Distress, grain boards then drill holes.
Dip in A/I to remove 'new' colour.
Coloured board fronts with chalk.
Glue in knots and colour them.
Sand back of knots and apply to wall framing.
Any final colouring and touch ups will be done later where needed.

This is a great looking set of walls--the variations are lovely--and, I think Dan hit it with the comment on the Knots.
