Database (WasRe: [KnotTyers] Re: books)
Also new to the group and also do software for a living (currently
contracting for a book wholesaler and just yesterday got ABOK with a
45% discount :-)
Trawling the net for a certain knot type, you always end up with a lot
of sites which just list a loadof knot names, and another load of sites
which have the same old pictures and words nicked from somewhere else.
There's definitely a need for a definitive knot site, and who better
than this group to provide it?
Where would it be? IGKT.net? I like Alan Grogono's site (animated
knots) could we do something like that? And do we need a database when
we could just google the site?
- Just wanted to say "thank you group" for all the info I gleaned from
this site and the links pages. I've completed my first (and possibly
last!) bellrope! It's just a small one, for an 8 inch bell. I made
it with black nylon parachute cord, grafted with white, and a couple
of white turksheads. I was also able to make a monkey's fist to hang
on the bow of my boat, just in case I need it to heave a line.
