How about a thread for knots and rope work?
>>
So Ray sets up this ridgeline with a siberian hitch.

https://youtu.be/YG_-N4NiSlo

So on this side you've got the knot against the tree and slack out into the line.
What's going on on the other tree? You do the same siberian hitch but pull away from that tree to make it taut? Or do you do another knot there?

If you pull the siberian hitch away from the tree to make it taut: is there some further knot to keep the hitch on that point in the ridgeline? Otherwise it'll sag to shit under the weight of the tarp, right?

The only knots I find myself using are
>bowline
>slipknot
>square knot
>larks head
>stopper knot
I would like to know more but I can't think of a situation where I would need a different knot then the ones above. I would be happy for any information on knots and uses that I haven't considered.

The icicle clench can be handy. It's good for lots of things, including earning money betting you can tie a knot on a screwdriver shaft that'll hold you up without slipping off.

Well, my days of taking the internet seriously are definitely coming to a middle.
Or not.

So, is it "Bow-Line" or "Bowlin"?
...the rabbit goes around the tree...and down in the hole...
>>
>>676777
If you're in the US colloquially we pronounce if bow-lin
>>
>>676831
with a 7-10 split no-knock league rules?
so confused.
maybe I shouldn't be allowed access to fire, or knoives, or rope; for that matter...

>icicle clench can be handy
Chances are slim that I'll ever need to use this knot but goddamn it's cool.
>>
Only knots I use for /out/ activities (including rock climbing and traversing) are
>double bowline
>rethreaded figure of 8
>figure of 8 on the bight
>Italian hitch
>clove hitch
>timber hitch
>stopper knots.
I've been out with guys who use alpine butterflies to deal with their safety line and reseves but could do the same thing with an overhand.
>>
>>676777
Its spelt bow line, but pronounced bowlin or boelyn. UK and US because of old English sailors.

Where I'm from we call that a safety knot. Use it to tie up livestock.
