    I ABSOLUTELY love this site. I hope, in the near future, to buy your CDs...INCREDIBLE!! I work with young children as a speech and language therapist. They require so many skills. Knowing what the knots are used for, when they are NOT to be used, learning a practical skill and still being able to teach them comprehension, skill sequencing, particular linguistic concepts, and fine motor skills while "chatting" is perfect. I love, of course, my ability to show a step over and over, carefully pointing out the changes from one to the other. Thank you, very much.

    Hi. I work as a rigger in the entertainment industry. I cannot tell you how your site has helped so many of the new guys over the years. I first came to your site when you only had 3 or 4 choices at the top. I have shared your site with hundreds of people around the world when I was on tour. Thank you so much for this site and making it free, and easy to follow along.

    Great website I am a Scouter working on my Woodbadge Ticket. This is the best site for knots for the scouts. Thanks! Now the older scouts have a great resource to go to when they need it.

    Your Animated Knots site is simply fantastic! I've been sailing, climbing, and participating in search and rescue for years so know the knots well...but even I learned a few new ones from you!

    WOW! Your website is absolutely stunning! I really like the real photographs used as demonstrations as well as the way you have animated it and matched the animation to the description. Well done!

    Your site is a fantastic resource. I am responsible for a state university's outdoor recreation and challenge programs. If it's okay with you, I would like to use your website as resource for all staff and participants.

    Your animated knots site is absolutely fantastic! Information is amazingly complete, very clear and useful. The site design could hardly be better for its purpose. I will be visiting very often to practice my knots and learn new ones. Congratulations, and continue with the good work!
