Knot today

Today I learned two new ways of tying my show laces.

Perhaps this isn’t very exciting, but I’m 45 years old and I’ve never given shoe lace tying much thought. But this morning, my youngest son, who is 7, was showing me the way he had be learned to tie his laces over the weekend at Cubs camp.

It was this 2 loop knot. http://www.fieggen.com/shoelace/twoloopknot.htm

I’d never seen it before. I thought it was pretty cool. My son likes it too.

All my life I’ve been using the so called “standard” knot. http://www.fieggen.com/shoelace/standardknot.htm

It never occurred to me that there were other ways to tie a shoe lace.

And just now, I saw a video online showing how to make the “Ian Knot”. http://www.fieggen.com/shoelace/standardknot.htm

This looks even cooler than the 2 loop knot.

When I get home tonight, I’m going to expand my shoe knot tying horizons.
