It’s the end of the weeklong lesson in knots! It started as a doodler’s homage to Columbus and his journey across the big bad ocean, and ended with five knots we can all actually use. I look forward applying my new knot knowledge in everyday conversation. “Pass the pretzels? You know Maude, the pretzel shape is the basic foundation for a couple of my favorite knots; the Angler’s Loop, and The Handcuff Knot.”
Today’s knot from the Ashley Book of Knots, happens to be the Angler’s Loop. Commonly used by sailors and fisherman, this knot is the best single loop knot for thin lines such as twine and fishing line.
Thanks for indulging my illustrative diversion this week. We’ll now return you to your regularly scheduled programming on the radmegan blog… up next week? More crafts, cooking, gardening and travel.
