1. Lizard Tail Sinnet

The Lizard Tail Sinnet is effectively a reverse Zipper Sinnet.
This said, the triangular column created by the Lizard Tail
Sinnet looks very different than the Zipper Sinnet's flat
saw-toothed configuration.

2. Lambda Knot

A slight modification of Clifford W. Ashley's decorative
Terminal Knot (ABOK #554), the Lambda Knot is a slick
way to lace three leafed clover like knots along a string
or cord.

3. Two Colored Switchback Strap

The Two Colored Switchback Strap is created through
the (interlocking) weave of two cords. At first glance
the creation of the strap looks easy, but don't be fooled.
Watch the video carefully to learn all the engineering
subtleties that make this strap worth tying.

Thanks Barry... (smile)  

That means a lot to me.

p.s. The PAC Branch of the IGKT asked me to sit
with them at a booth they're hosting at an upcoming
event here in the City (well actually on on island just
outside the city - Treasure Island). I'm excited to be
helping out and will take and post pictures here.

Another great video JD! I wish all these were in a printable form! When is that book coming out! After a lightning strike Friday and a new computer (loss of my favorites bar) I have a resurgence of faith in the printed page!

Hey Wood,

Ironically (in consideration of the number of instructional videos I've produced),
I feel the same way about the printed page. A backup drive (I over trusted)
crashed a few months back and I lost three videos in the process.

Thank goodness I had already posted them on my channel, so I was able to
retrieve copies from the web.

Regarding the book. I submitted it to my publisher back in February. It's in their
cue and should be sent for print by late summer/early Fall. It'll be available for
purchase shortly after that.

While "book one" will present my fusion knotting techniques/knots and a handful
of paracord ties. Book two, the book I'm working on now, is effectively the reverse
of the first (i.e. a massive number of paracord ties, a handful of innovative ties and
fusion knots).

Effectively "Decorative Fusion Knots" presents the techniques and knots from 2008/
2009. "Paracord Ties and Other Innovative Creations" (book I'm working on now), will
present the techniques, ties, creations and knots from 2010.

My hope is that the second book will be available shortly after the first. But truthfully, its
out of my hands.

Bringing us full circle, having a (YouTube) channel I can (self) publish my techniques is a
blessing, in consideration of the slow pace of publishing books.

Hope that helps,

JD ~ TIAT

What I end up doing now is tying examples of your videos and hope I remember well enough to do it again when not online! So far I've managed, but I'm not one to memorize oodles of knots.

Thanks for the reply! Now I want both books! :P
