Knot Tying - S1

This series is done. Join another one or make your own.

Organizer: lyndon

Duration: Aug 11 to Sep 16, 2019

Instructions:

We will be following the wisdom and instructions in a book called Why Knot? by Philippe Petit. Knots won't be small though.

There are different categories of knots in the book.

  • Termination knots
  • Binding knots
  • Bends
  • Hitches
  • Loops

Each category is used for a different purpose. We will learn one important knot from each category.

We will learn one new knot per week and practice every day.

It is okay if you miss some of the practice times. But if you go beyond 10 strikes, you will be removed from the group. It's like baseball except instead of striking out on your 3rd strike, you strike out on your 11th. So, on average you are allowed to miss two per week.

You will need to get yourself a cord to practice knot tying with. Even 12 inches long will be fine. One time, I accidentally asked for a 12-foot sub at Subway, which has nothing to do with this knot tying group but it was funny.


Rules:

Pacing Thing automatically removes group members who are not committed. In this group, you are allowed to miss 10 assignments. On strike 11, you are out!
