Thanks for this link.   I used to make monkey fists a few years ago when I used to volunteer on a steam tug.  I used them for the landing lines and had lost the instructions.     On a miniature note they make cute keyring dangles and also dog toys.
Oh and scuse me popping into the shed...  ;D

No worries and I brought you a mug of coffee and a big chunk of the fruit cake I just made... ;D I am going to put the recipe for the cake in the other board.

Please come again Magoo - anytime!!
I'm sure all the others will agree, our shed is your shed.

And it really doesn't matter where you put the tools after you've used them because we can never find them regardless. It's just something we like to say to help stomp our authority within 'our turf'.

Look forward to seeing you back!
