After stretching and sitting overnight, I took the weight off, still a little damp but that’s because of it being trapped under the weight, so now it’s gotta sit free, I guess I should cut the zip ties so it can be fully free, but at least now it’s flat..

Got a few lengths of different cord today and some toggles. Can now find my camo Huntsman, and some green lanyards for my green SAKs. First effort at a ball knot. Not as easy as it looks on YouTube.  :facepalm:

They never are as easy, but extremely satisfying when you get it right  :D

Once you get the hang of them (and other knots) they are a great way to pass the time with your hands - Keep a bit of cord in your pocket and you can tie during boring meetings (probably better for you than smoking or drinking coffee)

Thanks SM. Wife used to do a lot of beading and has given be a book on Chinese knotting, so I can try some of the techniques.  :hatsoff:

What to use when you adopt a dog and don’t have a leash? The lovely world of paracord, lol :D
Just no use for duct tape or wd40 on this one..

Good usage MadPlumbarian  :like: and that your new best friend has a home.  :salute:

Could make several loops of duct tape about 6in diameter and attach to the cord to make a more comfortable handle for your wrist? Or body harness for the dog if you were looking to be creative. Two loops one under each front leg and clipped over the shoulders to the leash?

Yeah ha, I like that idea! But what about the wd40? Spray it all over the dog and hope it lubes him? Better yet my knees, lol,
No, no no, I got it, the wheels on the kids skateboard and have the dog pull me since he’s in a comfy and it will be like a dog sled!!
