The need and usefulness of knots is something most people don’t think about until they are confronted with a tangled mess and disastrous knot. Been there, done that! This ancient skill has allowed mankind to sail around the world, climb impossible mountains, build homes and structures, acquire food, secure objects, tie the Christmas tree to the roof of our cars, and most importantly save lives. There are literally thousands of different kinds of knots and tens of ways to tie each one. Here is a great Infographic from Fix.com and PT Winchester explaining the most basic ones to get you started exploring the world or making things easier around the home.
