Hi Derek,

That's the picture, but it wasn't the hitch I meant; rather the intricate knot that's keeping the two ends tied together.  They're/it's standing to the left of the actual hitch.  And no, I don't believe I've seen your hitch before, although it looks such a simple and elegant arrangement it has one of those "well of _course_ that's how to do it" feelings to it :)

I think she asked what the Bend was Derek.
I can't make it out or I would answer for you.

Hi Derek,

Please may I ask what the bend is you show in the first image?  It looks familiar, but I can't place it.

Anyway -- sorry Glenys  -  it is the Vice Versa bend - see http://www.enm.bris.ac.uk/staff/rrc/knots/Reever.pdf

:) Technology has yet to come up with a way round being in detention, though :)

Thanks, I'm looking forwards to mastering that.
