66: Manrope knot

FullSizeRender.jpg

Before Christmas Mum had a turn out of her loft. She found stuff up there that she had totally forgotten about, including her wedding dress , the bridesmaid dress she wore to my aunt’s wedding, wigs and clothes worn in various plays, and boxes of books and memorabilia that my Dad had collected among other things.

My Dad used to be a scout and among his books we found this copy of Knots, Bends, Splices by Captain Jutsum.

It’s not in great condition, but interesting nonetheless . My 66 is the first figure demonstrating a manrope knot.
