Anybody here who likes to tie knots?

This key fob is an example of my handiwork. It's made out of type III ParaCord.

No, she is Ms. Waite, the head of our complaint department. Her first name is Helen.

If you have any complaints you must go to Helen Waite.

Did I say it floats? It will hold up at least one key; so if your boat capsizes you can still start your car, providing you haven't drowned. :wink:

My niece is learning how to do knots like that, called gimp in camp-lingo. Not sure if it has the same name elsewhere.

(Damn, all the obvious puns are tied up!)

I started on 'gimp' many years ago, Grasshopper. :wink:

Learned some more in Boy Scouts and then as a Scout leader. MY father in law was a Chief Petty Officer in the Navy. Then I taught myself a few he didn't know. I'm still learning. Carole is happy that it keeps my hands away from the tv remote.

I watch the ropes twisting and turning and feel terribly clever.

Neologist, that is pretty awesome. I once tied a cherry stem into a knot using only my tongue and teeth.
