Why I Love the Internet - Reason #2 - Learning to Tie Knots

Ever the outdoorsman, I've decided it's time to learn how to tie some basic knots. I was not a boy scout as a kid, so I never learned. Enter the Internet. Just google the word "knots" and check out the first result, Animated Knots by Grog. Here you can learn how to tie 119 knots. Don't know where to begin? Then search for a knot under one of the following categories:
  • Boating
  • Climbing
  • Fishing
  • Search & Rescue
  • Household
  • Decorative
Oh...I forgot to mention, each knot is animated--you are shown how to tie it through a sequence of photos that break down the process into manageable steps.
