Through this attractive, well-organized archive of more than 3,900 different knots - presented through 7,000 illustrations - the art of knot tying lives on, both as a historical reference and a reservoir of handy knowledge. This should be a unique and permanent addition to any library.
I came across this book way back in the 70's when a friend made me a fancy knotted thingy. The pub I used in Ambleside in the 90's had a big brass bell for calling time screwed to the wall at the bar and the clanger had a white rope hanging down with a delightful Turks Head (I think) knot at the end which was a popular topic of conversation with new visitors.
If anyone has a copy they do not want I would be most happy to take it of their hands.

"Long ago, when men cursed and beat the ground with sticks,
it was called witchcraft. Today it's called golf." -- Will Rogers (1879-1935)

Now I keep up with the news on NPR and BBC4 .This way it's possible to actually do many other creative things while my eyes are free and the ears are engaged with other forms of entertainment . Besides the ears are not able to hold tools or do anything more than listen and waggle a bit when the jaw muscles are clenched in a certain way .
If I really need to watch any show all that's needed is google ,yahoo or bing and there you are . No fuss no time wasted ,everything at your fingertips .
Way to go for me.

This is a most extraordinary show that is airing on my Talk Talk TV box at the moment.
The Curse of Oak Island
To avoid adverts I record the shows and when playing back I skip the adverts. I never have trouble deciding what to watch as I set the box up to record whole series's and then watch at my leisure.
