A knot for all seasons

How many people know lots and lots of knots, know just what knot is needed for a particular situation, and know how to tie it? Not many people, I’d imagine.

One of the many things you can find on the Internet is just the knot you need, with instructions on how to tie it. I needed the knot above to join two lengths of new clothesline. I Googled for “knots to join two pieces of rope.” I chose the “Carrick Bend” and followed an animated illustration on how to tie it.

The mission was to replace the clothesline and double its length. Mission accomplished, with new clothespins to boot.

    I would use the single or double surgeons knot. Thats what I use while joining 2 fishing lines together and for the strength of the knot too
