Welcome to my knotting page
I'm hoping to add various resources for knot
tying, particularly oriented at the scouts. In my time as a scout
leader, I was surprised at how little ability not only my troop,
but most of them in the area, had in knotting. With luck, these
pages will be one step in helping to encourage them, and others,
to expand their skills.
The pages on the basic knots and Turkshead contain a lot of
pictures, and may take some time to load. Please be patient!
Any suggestions can be e-mailed to me at firstname.lastname@example.org. For other links,
including the troop web page, go to my own home page at
Note that this is
not an official site of the Boy Scouts of America. What appears
here is my own, and not necessarily endorsed by the BSA.

- Alright! all 50 states in the guestbook. I guess it is fitting that
it happened while I was at summer camp with my troop...!

- 49 States in the guestbook. Come on,
Someone in Hawaii must need to know some knots!

- Not really an update, but I just
took an extended look at the guestbook, and wanted to thank
all my visitors for their comments, it is very gratifying. I
was also stunned to find visitors from 26 countries, the
District of Columbia, and 45 46 states! (I guess the scouts in
Hawaii, Mississippi, Montana, North Dakota and Wyoming know
their knots already!). Thanks, folks!
