New Kick
« on: December 06, 2012, 01:14:38 AM »
I knew sooner or later I'd get into the knots, but I hadn't expected the craving to hit until my muzzle greyed and my eyes clouded. Better this way anyway; my hands aren't yet ravaged by arthritis and my eyesight is unclouded.

Perusing a crisp knot book on my shelf I fell upon the word "repertoire" triggering that old familiar tingling in my digits. Muscle memory guides all my knock-arounds; card-trick, Rubik's, juggling and uke.

Time to Knot.

Perfect!  Go find a copy of abok and a couple of shoelaces (or at least that's what i prefer to use) and go crazy.

Gook luck, and happy knotting

I have The Ultimate Encyclopedia of Knots & Ropework and a few odd scraps of stuff.  Just working on the nomenclature and familiarity right now.

Surprising that the recent 1980's were such a knot renaissance.

Good day gents and welcome Wakey.

I am moving this topic to the Chit Chat Board where I think it belongs.
