To start netting, you should have 3 things: The string you will be making the net from,your mesh stick,and a foundation of some sort.

More than Fish and Hammocks

The foundation (which is what you attach your first row of loops to) is not strictly required, but it is much easier to start with one than without as it provides an anchor/tension point for your netting. The traditional foundation is another loop of string, long enough to loop around your foot, or some other anchor point, and still allow your net to be at about navel-level (or wherever is most comfortable for you to have your hands) when pulled taut. This method is, as I mentioned, traditional, and a very portable and space-efficent way to net, but I have also found that the flexibility of this foundation can cause tension problems once you get going, and there are limits to the width of the piece you can make when using a string foundation loop.

Quiet Friday: Rag Rug Finishing – Warped for Good

You come in from the world, with your feet dusty and weary; you look down, and the rug says, “Welcome home.” After the weaving is complete, the only thing left is finishing. For rags rugs, that means securing the warp ends, and finishing the ends with fringe or stitched hems. I prefer the look of hems over fringe, so my rugs usually have turned-under hems (occasionally, I do a bound hem, but I’ll save that for another time). The hem area is woven with narrower strips (about 1/4 in. or 1/2 cm) than the rest of the rag rug, to make it less bulky for turning under, and it lays nice and flat on the floor. The end is the beginning. Rosepath rag rugs being unrolled and cut from the loom. Step 1. Step 2. Step 3. Step 4. Step 5. Rosepath rag rug, hemmed and ready, with the look of a breath of fresh air.

Constrictor knot. History[edit] First called "constrictor knot" in Clifford Ashley's 1944 work The Ashley Book of Knots, this knot likely dates back much further.[5] Although Ashley seemed to imply that he had invented the constrictor knot over 25 years before publishing The Ashley Book of Knots,[1] research indicates that he was not its originator.[6] Ashley's publication of the knot did bring it to wider attention.[7] Although the description is not entirely without ambiguity, the constrictor knot is thought to have appeared under the name "gunner's knot" in the 1866 work The Book of Knots,[8][9] written under the pseudonym Tom Bowling.[10] in relation to the clove hitch, which he illustrated and called the "builder's knot".

We would post up on the edge of the pond with cane poles, tie on a line and use some of “Papa’s Famous Catfish Bait” that had been “marinating” out behind the shed for a few months and proceed to spend the day catching sun perch, and catfish. Those were times that I wish I could relive over and over again! Unfortunately time moves ever forward and as Robert Frost put it, “way leads on to way.” Needless to say, I found that quite a few of my teenage years went by before I found myself out at the edge of any pond again…
