    I am a knot head. Love your animated knot section. Haven't seen anything that even comes close

    Just wanted to say thanks for the site. I'm leading a den of cub scouts, and flunked "knot tying 101" as a child. Your animated knots helped me understand WHY the knots work the way they do, and I now feel confident it teaching my own youngsters.

    What a wonderful website that you have created. Your diagrams, the descriptions of the knots and their usages, terminology, everything, have just the right amount of information. Clear and easy-to-use. I've bookmarked your website for future reference and now I'm going to wander around the house to see what else I can tie up. Thank you.

    What an awesome site. Thank you for such a great job. Scouting kids love it. Tie a knot in your tie . . . for doing such a good turn.

    I bought Animated Knots about 2 weeks ago; I just love it. I am an industrial Electrician w/30 years experience. I was looking for a web harness, and I found your Hasty Harness; sometimes you just do not have enough harnesses on the job site. Your Hasty Harness is very comfortable. I also like your splicing section: eye splice, back splice, and short splice; most books do not cover these very well or at all; electricians use splices when pulling wire in conduits, most knots will not fit down the conduit when pulling wire w/ the rope. Thanks for a great product,

    We suggest your site whenever a customer needs help with a knot.I personally love the step by step animation.

    I just wanted to express my appreciation for your excellent knot page. I am a sailing psychiatrist living in Queensland, Australia, having trained in Bristol, UK. My crew have all been directed to your site for instruction.

    Your website is - BY FAR - the most excellent means I have ever seen for teaching the critical art of knotcraft. Keep up the good work!!
