"When you reach the end of your rope, tie a knot and hang on!" FDR
I started tying knots as a Girl Scout and haven't stopped. In the fall of 2014 I was desperate for a challenging new artistic outlet and mapped out about a hundred knots I couldn't imagine being able to tie. Now I can tie them all and some from memory alone. DeviantArt has provided me with much food for the imagination, and a couple very challenging maps to tie.
