    I'm looking for an easy to follow guide on the internet for tying whistle lanyards and all I get so far is shoite and blurry pics. Any ideas if there are any decent knot tying sites about?

    That apart from being disturbing also doesnt do it as a laanyard where the running ends are consumed in the twist of the knot!

    No its too vague although I believe it may be a form of sennet.

  6. Sure you will pick up more than a few handy tips here:

    London Festival of the Art of Japanese Rope Bondage

    Well it is Art, innit?

    So how do I know about this? A company I do work for was asked if they wanted to be a sponsor. (A slight mistake over the meaning of "Suspension Systems". Allegedly.)

    Nearly but not quite, I may use that and bodge it so it makes a double sennit with no loose running ends.
  8. If you want a propper seamans lanyard I can post one to you.
  9. Been having a go with advice from the link on the pigeon watch forum. Easy and quite impressive. don't forget to seal the ends over as they show you though.

    (missing off the beads, of course)

    Don't know what a gimp has to do with it. When I've made similar things with the kids, I started it by folding one bit of string in half, forming a loose overhand knot in the centre of the other, and tightening the knot over the fold of the first bit of string.
