diamond knot

this week i learned to tie a diamond knot.

its base is the carrick hitch, which i also had to learn to tie for that.

it is an ornamental knot used to tie up lanyards and such.

Pretty. Takes me a long time to learn a knot, and I've forgotten the few I once knew. Had a theater tech class, for the final we were given four lengths of string and had to roll up the test. On the back of the paper were lines with the names of knots. Had to tie the right knot in the right place. Great class.

I don't think I would ever need this knot, but as knots go this one is sure pretty.
