   Beautiful loops !
   I hope you will show how you tie them, and how you go from each one to each one else.

   Why ? The loop shown at Reply#5 was fine. I would have followed the route from #6 to #5, and not the opposite... There is no difference in the degree of the "communication" between the two eyes at he two double loops- so why one would prefer #6 from #5 ?

   Clever - but it is not my cup of tea, because it is asymmetric - and almost all of the dozens of the double midline/TIB loops we already know ( and the many other we do not, but one can easily figure out ) are symmetric... See the one I have discovered just yesterday, buried in Knotting Matters :
    http://igkt.net/sm/index.php?topic=5166.0

   In the form presented, it is a single, one-eye loop, but one can easily tie it as a double loop, if one tucks half of the bight through the two loops in the one way, as it is done, and half in the other.

This is not a knot.

Hi All,
        I have two more loops here, very well balance and very easy to untie.
        Xarax, I hope you would like this cup of tea.

        謝謝  alan lee.

   Two bowlines sharing the same collar, like ABoK#1085.
This is not a knot.
