Reporting aboad with a wee present for those who might be interested in traditional knotting skills: A fresh Bellrope Tutorial which is a step-by-step on creating one, with coverage of a ringbolt (Spanish coxcomb) hitched strop-eye, "over-two" fender hitching and simple grafting as well.
I'm looking for pictures of your fancywork or that which you may have collected, as well as looking for anyone who might want to contribute a tutorial of their own for my tutorial library. I'm hoping to get a LOT of knowledge up on the web to keep the art alive into the 21st.
Especially interested in chest beckets and RN whistle lanyards!
