To those interested, Domhnall has coerc.....er talked me into giving another class in fancy rope work.  Most fancy work is done in stages, one knot added to another, added to a braid, added to a weave added to a knot, etc. until the final product is achieved.

This time, for those interested, we will be starting on a rose knot AKA a "sailor's rose." (Baroness Dana has one)  This is a multi stage project and involves four separate knots (actually bends) tied in succession. At the next FP we will start on the first one, a 6 strand monkey's fist.

If those interested could bring about 9 feet of # 72 thread, cable laid (twisted) nylon seine twine, it would help the budget a lot.  BRaided nylon wil work but it is not as pretty and is definitely not evern close to period, the twisted twine at least looks period.

I will have some for those who cannot get any.  This particlular seine twine can be found at Academy sports near their fishing nets (it's where I got mine). If you bring a piece longer than 9', that's OK, this size cord is easy to cut off but hard to splice.

Till then
