Completed my hitching themed mini paddle:
Which now completes my set - not sure I will do any more now!
The top section is interlocking reef knots with 8 strands in blue and 8 black
Middle section is Needle Hitching in one strand of blue
Bottom section is interlocking blue and black cow hitching (this is one of the few forms of knot work I have ever done that is slower to work the slack and dress to keep straight than tying Turks Heads!!)
The transition between each section is covered by my favourite Fan Knots (because they have straight edges rather than a deeply scalloped edges). These are MOD knots that can be tied without runlist/AGM or any other TUT, just "build the code"
Then for a mat for the blade, I wanted to do something special for my last one (and different from previous paddles)
Fuller write up here ......
