Wasnt sure from the homepage why you posted that - but when you get to the actual knot pages it is very impressive:
they arent gifs, but it cycles through the steps of the knot -
you can vary the speed, you can invert, mirror, or rotate the whole set of images. Very well done thumbs up

Puns, what puns? This may come as noose to you but according to the panel you made a slip.

Thanks for the website, Giampy.

The images are so clear and simple that understanding a knot is knot a problem.
It will help my son to learn and tie his own tie next time.

Regards,

Anand

Well I'm no Boy Scout nor am I Richard Kimble.  Speaking of which a video of The One Armed Man(tm) tying knots might be interesting.  smiley

It's probably a compound knot.  That just looks like a double-line hitch.  It would be nice if they told you "hey- tie a double line hitch right here- see here for instructions." or something similar.

Update: It's a Figure-Eight Loop: http://www.southee.com/Kn...Loops.htm#FigureEightLoop

Notice that on a karash double loop they do the same thing- but direct you to the Figure-Eight Loop to tie that part: http://www.southee.com/Knots/Knots_DoubleLoops.htm

Yeah, those pics are kind of like step by step instructions for painting the Mona Lisa.  Step 1 blank canvas.  Step 2 portrait complete paint dry.  smiley

I'm having a hard time following this one:

ah yeah, that does sort of jump from zero to 100 Grin

That's a knot that's used for climbing with rope and harness/belt (also with a carabiner).
I had a brief spell attempting to climb walls with a friend - I did learn that knot, but dont know if I could reproduce it now.**
The video doesnt help any - I wonder is that knot described elsewhere and they forgot to let us know about it.

** It is very important that the two strands dont 'overlap' each other. I *think* that's what they're trying to say in the last image ["Wrong"]: "a kink in the standing end is an error" - but I couldnt be sure there (standing end? - I never did learn the 'knots' vocabulary...)

I guess you could say the villain single-handedly kept the audience tied to their TV sets.
