    Hi, first of all congratulations for creating the best site ever about knots!!!

    What a fantastic website! I am trying to teach my son how to tie a number of different knots, this helps me greatly.

    No need to reply. Our local paper (Valley News, West Lebanon, NH) had an article which listed as the best site of the week. I might have said best site of the year. Crisply designed, concise explanations, and of course splendid animation makes this site superb. Ironically I had just started my daily rant about the "death of practical knowledge" thanks to TV, x-boxes, i-pods and other virtual pursuits, when along comes and makes me realize that the internet CAN be used to restore what our grand parents knew and did every day of their practical lives.

    I am a knot head. Love your animated knot section. Haven't seen anything that even comes close

    What you have done here is amazing.

    Hi - your site is fantastic! At last, a decent way to teach a knot - watching it tie itself in slow-motion! Books never could do this properly. I've been sailing for years, and can even tie a shamrock knot, but never did get the hang of a rolling hitch until your site showed me. Thanks.

    I bought Animated Knots about 2 weeks ago; I just love it. I am an industrial Electrician w/30 years experience. I was looking for a web harness, and I found your Hasty Harness; sometimes you just do not have enough harnesses on the job site. Your Hasty Harness is very comfortable. I also like your splicing section: eye splice, back splice, and short splice; most books do not cover these very well or at all; electricians use splices when pulling wire in conduits, most knots will not fit down the conduit when pulling wire w/ the rope. Thanks for a great product,

    Hands down the best site I've ever visted. Well done!

    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.

    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!
