John RICHINGS made several knots on his walking stick

Here is the slideshow

Roy CHAPMAN 's Elizabeth 's belt after ABoK

As many of you know from their coming in those pages since a long time Roy has his

knots business established.

Here is his latest production.

Added 2011 May 3rd

Nancy BARNHART's work continued

Nancy''s spherical coverings (reminder = a spherical cover ( a core ) is NOT a particular

knot (it can have other use like covering other shape than a globe/ball) but a particular USE

or FUNCTION of a knot.

Note in the 2 firts picture how Nanacy astutely marks the correction to make.

Nancy BARNHART's work

Nancy is a new comer to knots but she "strides" in her enthusiastic progress.

Here are some of her work as a slideshow.

You can also see more of her work at the yahoo group

FCB ( Frank Charles Brown)

Frank made several of his F.E.G (eff-i-gy) for some of his friends.

Each F.E.G show a particular aspect of the activity or nationality or interest of some of his

friends.

GUITAR

FENDER maker

( a persoanl interest of Frank = PELOTE BASQUE )

and two made specially for 'little me':

A TYPICAL FRENCH ( béret, wine bottle and "baguette" (a type of French bread)

Some JOUEURS DE BOULES ( boules players )

from Claude HOCHET (SCK spherical covering knot )

As an umpteenth test for his new software we have been using since the very beginning

of 2011 that can do ( grid AND codes ) ANY NESTED BIGHT CYLINDRICAL KNOTS

Here is a variation on his 408 FACEs/ 408 crossings which is still 408 crossings for 204

FACEs.

This also show that for spherical covering not only the number of FACEs has to be stated

but also the number of crossings.

So this particular one is SCK goes by the sweet name of

23 LEADs 4 BIGHT-NEST / 6 BIGHTs per Nest = 24 BIGHTs

408 CROSSINGs 204 FACEs ( 02 - U2 coding )

Original 408 FACEs/408 Crossings

The 204 no 212FACEs / 408Crossings

in fact it is 212 FACES most of the FACES made of 2 crossings and a few of 2 crossing

The TUTORIAL

Added 2011 March 8th

Photo from Claude HOCHET = a 504 FACEs made as spherical covering of a French

billiard ball.

Claude made it to verify his new program ( the one spoken here under in the Feb 1st topic

The 456F has already been shown, but this 504 is new.

Here is what the program does for the 456F and here for the 504F

Of course the program give the code of each Half-Period in the knot.

Jan VOS

Here is the bracelet Jan made from Nono's grid for ABoK #1388

[open quote]

Used 2 full grids and 2 ropes, same colour.

It is nice to see a sharp triangular form, with a real sharp edge.

Claude HOCHET

At last I got permission, at the occasion of Nono's 828 Faces inspired by ESCHER,

to show something I have been privy to for some time : even before the RKnot Builder

VERSION 3 could be put on line.

This software ( no distribution, no English, no user's manual ).

This software demands -that tis a rather feeble word - a deep knowledge of those knots

and IMO for the third type (the irregular) ) a real powerful grasp on the topic.

This software -very astute algorithm, firts version written in 3 days !!!- can do :

Ofcourse it also compute the table of coding for each Half-Period : integrated tutorial so

to speak ;-)

*** REGULAR NESTED CYLINDRICAL KNOTS SYMETRIC ( Herringbone,

Herringbone-Pineapple, any pineapple, any mix of Reglular knot, automatically find ALL the

variations, find singles and multiple-strand version.....) Example

*** REGULAR NESTED CYLINDRICAL KNOTS ASYMETRIC Example

*** IRREGULAR NESTED CYLINDRICAL KNOTS Example

Don WRIGHT

A 5ft dog leash made for his brother.

A REALLY GOOD PRACTICAL JOKE : here

DFon said that his brother RON had asked for a 5ft least but alas poor Don was

way off! he made half an inch too much.

So Barry BROW jokingly told that he would take the excess for his non existent

dog.

BEWARE OF WHAT YOU ARE WISHING FOR YOU MAY GET IT !

Feb 3rd : here is the real leash Barry will get.

Jan VOS

THIRD man after Nono to use those grids and second to make a full size bracelet

with them.

Jan realisation of the famous NONO's bracelet, the single strand version of #1389 .

[open quote]

I used 3 pages of the 12 bights and 1 page of the 14 bights. 3 mm rope.

Total 50 bights.

The first attempt was in white cotton, but failed by to many mistakes.

After the first round I had to take out the 8 mistakes.

John RICHINGS

Second man to make a 1776 FACEs spherical covering using the diagram invented by

Nono that john drew again but on isometric.

The full work can be seen in a slideshow.

Ball is polystyrene 100mm in diameter

The whole projet used 38m (with 20m John finished one PASS with 1m spare
