    Greetings, Now this sounds like a project I could get into! Maybe this is how we can put the Alberta group on the IGKT map. Anybody interested in helping?

      I dig your thinking. If you want to take it to the next level I can write a software interface for such a database. Laurel wrote:I m new

        Laurel <nomondolo@...> wrote:I'm new to the group and to knot tying....don't know much. But what I do know are databases (i make them for a living.) and what might best serve your purpose is some sort of database so that you could query it for the name of what you are looking for (i.e., turk) and/or number of blights and/or number of strands, etc...and it would return a list of all possible knots that meet the criteria.

        The trick with using/designing a database is to identify the fields you'd require up front so that all data you gather would meet the required fields (e.g., for each knot, you need NAME (and all aliases), CLASS, #STRANDS, #BLIGHTS, maybe SOURCE of information, Country of Origin (if known), TYPE, USES, DEGREE OF DIFFICULTY, and each one of these fields or any combination thereof, you could use to query the database.
        but again - it's best to id these fields up front so that when you gather your data - you work towards completing those fields for each knot.

        - just a thought. but what a tool.......
