    How useful! Thank you for sharing. I used to know how to tie a lot of these, but haven’t used them in a while and have since forgotten.

    We love knots in this house! I am a sailor and my husband uses them a lot doing tree work. It’s funny because one of my LO’s favorite books is our knot book.

    First time I went outdoors I didn’t even think about knots. I mean let’s be real who would. But after some time people were doing them like pros and I had to ask others to do complicated knots for me.. No one gave me a hard time because I am new but I never knew how often you have to tie a different knot type in outdoors and what kind of consequences can be if you make a mistake.

    Thank you for sharing this and the infographic especially! Some of the advanced knots still give me hard time but I am good with them it is just that I am kind of slow when tieing them. I guess time and experience will help with my speed.

    What matters the most is not the speed but a perfected technique and with time I hope I will be fast and great!
