This is another of the lamb’s wool dusters that we bought about 10 years ago. It has seen hard use,and the handle is starting to show some age — time to cut it off and do a new one. This sacrifice to the Gods Of The Knots should please them. Now if I could just find my woad and a chicken.
The knots on this handle are:
The long white knot is a Turk’s Head knot of 23 Leads X 2 Bights, doubled in white paracord.
The green knot that fits in the hollow of your hand, and makes it much better, is a Turk’s Head of 5 Leads X 4 Bights. It is doubled and tied in paracord. There is a mouse under it to fill out the shape — a Spanish Ring knot, if I remember correctly.
Because the handle is a straight dowel, I am going to mouse it out more this time. The one linked to above had a turned handle, shaped to fit the average hand. This made it more comfortable to use. After I have had the moon light ceremony and sacrificed these knots I will post the new ones. Between now and then I am open to suggestions — what would you like to see, which knots, anything special?
Thank you for dropping by the Temple Of Knots. Sorry you missed the rites; happy you get to view the results. See you again:
