2011 August 13th Miche SINCE : un gainage
en T / a sleeve with a 'T' shape
Michel m'a demandé si j'avais des notions à propos de ce qui est (très
mal à propos
car il ne s'agit en rien de BT même si les "pièces" de départ sont des
BT: un cheval et un
âne peuvent avoir une progéniture mule ou mulet (jument X
âne) d'une part et bardot
(ânesse X cheval ) d'autre part, mais la progéniture n'est cependant ni
âne, ni cheval !)
appelé bonnet turc en T .
N'ayant pas de notion valant le partage j'ai lancé un appel à Jimmy
R. Williams (secrétaire
Igkt-PAB) qui a relayé mon appel à Pat DUCEY ; John RICHINGS, Glenn
( igkt NAB).
John a partagé plusieurs documents, Glenn également et Pat quant à lui
a fourni sa grille de
gainage en croix à 6 BIGHTS.
Là-dessus Michel a opté pour la poursuite solitaire de sa propre piste
et il à fort bien fait
puisque voici le résultat de la 'fusion' d'un BT 14L 3B et
d'un BT 7L 4B de sa façon.
Un tuto est en cours de rédaction par Michel mais je voulais publié
cela sans tarder.
Michel asked me if I had some notions about what is call most
improperly THK with a 'T'
shape or with a cross shape. Improperly because it is certainly NOT any
THK and NOT
EVEN any Regular Knot ! Juts as a mule is neither horse nor ass !
Having no notion worth sharing I ask help to Jimmy R.
Williams (Igkt-PAB) who relayed
the call to Pat DUCEY ; John RICHINGS, Glenn DICKEY
( igkt NAB).
John shared several documents, Glenn did the same and Pat send his own
grid for a
6 BIGHT CROSS
At that point Michel decided to make forth on his own trail and he was
quite right in doing
that as here you see his own fusion of two THK : 14 L 3 B
confluing with a 7L 4 B.
A tutorial is being prepared and should be shortly published in SINCE_TUTS

This gift was accompanied by a touching ( French mind map, I suppose
that for you it will
be 'moving' as in isuicing "moves in the inner being' ) letter
explaining why this gift intended

Brian certainly has a memory retention that is out of the
common showing that this
gift is not a trivial gesture.

My father is an avid sailor and I was his crew from the age of 3. I
borrowed my father's
ABoK and started decorative knotting at age 12.
Several years later, he made me return it
and I was forced to buy my
own ABoK. :o( For many years following, I mostly made

When I became serious again about decorative knotting, I started with
monkey fist knots
and slightly more complex turks head knots before
progressing to much larger, more
complex turks head knots (such as
water bottle coverings) and relatively simple globe knots.
Recently, I have been trying larger and more complex globe knots. I
honestly don't know
how many other people have tied a 1,000 facet globe
knot, but I would be surprised if more
than 10 people in the world have

bottle cover that JP dressed. A mighty feat IMO.
