A Handy Joint Knot For You Of The Outdoors
« on: October 20, 2022, 11:43:20 pm »
Most of you outdoor enthusiast are most likely familiar with the following 'handy' knot. But for those of you who may not be, here is the zeppelin knot explained in simple terms.


Jeremiah 5:21 King James Version 
Hear now this, O foolish people, and without understanding; which have eyes, and see not; which have ears, and hear not:
2 Chronicles 7:14
14 If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.

Sometimes I tie up my zeppelin.  :cool:  Seriously, this is actually one of my favorite knots.   
I come from under the hill, and under the hills and over the hills my paths led.  And through the air, I am she that walks unseen.

I learned this knot back in the late 70s.  I never tied one again... but I would have a couple of times if I could have remembered it.  As it is a Carrick bend worked those times.  It's useful anytime the stress is great enough to jam a square knot.
