    I just noticed that Merlin posted in response to our attempt to recreate his rope tie idea. And he suggested that anyone else with a rigging challenge for me should come forward.

    I’d absolutely love that – I’m having a fantastic time trying to improve my ropework; I actually made a Tumblr blog here, which is dedicated to recording my rigging journey;- http://arielsriggingpage.tumblr.com/ for anyone who’s interested 🙂

    So any rope challenges would be very welcome; I struggle to interpret text rope ‘recipes’ and became rather irritable while trying to interpret/make Hywel take over tying Merlin’s suggestion. So ideally I’d love ideas in the form of sketches, photos or fairly short explanations. But I’ll take what I can get really – I do want to keep improving rather than doing the same ties over and over. So let me know if you have an idea!

    Thank youuuuuuuuuu!

    I’m not so great at rope ties myself, which is why leather cuffs are seen so much in my photos. But I do have a few things that you might try:

    1. Use “flat” ropes or web strapping to produce appropriately-modified versions of the “standard” rope ties.

    2. The “Chinese Five Flowers Tie.” Starting info and tutorials here: http://www.chineseropeart.com/home.html

    3. Heavy rope bondage after the style of Saico. See Saico’s profile on fetlife.com for examples.
