Title: How to Tie the Dragon's Tongue by TIAT (Video Instructions!)
Post by: JD~TIAT on July 07, 2010, 02:01:15 AM
Wait until I show you what I have in store for this week!
In short, I've been tooling around with an intricate weave
that looks like a sine wave on a lattice.

Couldn't figure out a teachable way to show it to others,
until last weekend.

Here's what the moment of insight sounded like... "Oh my
gawd that's wicked cool! People are going to freak out
when they see this!!!"

Yes...it's a knot that can have its frequency modulated!
