Knots: That Simplify Your Life (Hardcover)
In Knots: That Simply Your Life, writer Miki Anagrius shows how a basic understanding of knots is a useful, fun, and attractive tool not just in boating, but in everyday life. Through beautifully shot illustrations you'll learn how to use knots to store, organize, and link various objects, as well as hang and carry items. The possibilities are endless: tie a shoelace knot that never loosens but is easy to undo; adjust the height of lamps and flowerpots suspended from the ceiling; bunch up newspapers bound for the recycling; bind your roast and herbs in the kitchen; suspend your bicycle from the ceiling; restrain overly eager pets. With a dose of competence at knots, many problems can be solved in an attractive and practical manner. This book also provides information on the different types of rope, knots, and string, how to stop bits of rope from fraying, and how to connect different lengths of rope and make practical loops.
