all for knot

“In a knot of eight crossings, which is about the average-size knot, there are 256 different ‘over-and-under’ arrangements possible… Make only one change in this ‘over and under’ sequence and either an entirely different knot is made or no knot at all may result.”

– Annie Proulx, The Shipping News

Dedicated to Jill, who didn’t say nuthin when I made her wait at Main and Cordova an extra 5 minutes while I took my sweet time sketching these tugboats in Crab Park.
