Knot So Simple

by August 30, 2009 08/30/09

ABOKCBS Sunday Morning ran an excellent segment today titled “Knot So Simple.”

Correspondent Serena Altschul took a look at the International Guild of Knot Tyers in the United Kingdom, and interviewed  Phoebe Ashley Shardon, the daughter of Clifford Ashley.

Ashley is the writer and illustrator of the Ashley Book of Knots (1944). The ABOK is still known as the bible of knot tying today, and is a must for anyone wanting to learn more about knot tying.

We highly encourage everyone interested to pick up a copy, it’s a fantastic reference book and it’s authority still rings true after 65 years.

Check out the video from today’s CBS Sunday Morning segment here.

I have owned the "Ashley Book of Knots" for a few years now and it is, to my knowledge, the most complete book of knots around! I swear it has a knot for everything...it really is amazing!

I've owned a copy of "The Morrow Guide to Knots" for several years, I've worn the spine out I reference it so much.

This looks like another good book to check out.

GunMonkey, "The Morrow Guide to Knots" is an excellent book in its own right, but some consider the "Ashley Book of Knots" to be the hands down best book out there on Knot Tying. It will definitely be a great step up from the Morrow book.

Thanks for the comment!
