Knots you'll use - A Knot A Day: 365 Knot Challenges for All Abilities by Nic Compton. Learn how to tie and use knots in numerous creative and practical ways. There are eight knot-tying categories - General, Indoor, Outdoor, Magic, Craft, Fashion, Decorative, and Splices and Whippings. Each knot category is color-coded for easy reference. The 'General' section contains the base knots. Challenge yourself daily - starting with Day 1 and working your way through to Day 365 consistently building your skills. Or jump in wherever you like. Use the Table of Contents or Index to find a particular knot or project. What I like best about this book are all the projects using knots. Both the decorative and functional knots appeal to me. I couldn't resist temptation. First, I made the Spiral bracelet, then the Celtic heart necklace. Both were easy to make though the heart took a few tries. While learning do not try to rush. From practice, I've memorized the designs. The instructions are straightforward. They are well-photographed and explained. Jargon is minimal. It's a cool book! There is something for everyone. See excerpts below. Publisher Adlard Coles released this 368-page paperback on February 9, 2021. Get your copy below!
