New Challenge: A Knot A Day

I have always been wanting to learn how to make knots and then teach my eldest son as I think it’s a good life skill to learn. My eldest son is 10 years old now, but I have always been procrastinating. Just two days ago, I bumped into a blog post, which is about an artist, Windy Chien, learning and making a new knot everyday in 2016. It’s called “The Year of Knots”, and a book about all the knots will be published soon too.

This really inspired me to plan a new challenge for myself and my eldest son. I plan to learn and make a new knot everyday together with him. I think this will be a fun and interesting challenge for us, and we will surely have good bonding time learning and making knots together too. We have just made our first knot – Doughnut Knot. It’s quite easy, and I think it’s a nice and neat way to keep any strings in good order. My son watched the video tutorial and then taught me how to make it. It’s also a good way to let my son learn to make and learn to teach too.

    • Yes, I found it interesting as well. Actually I wanted to teach him tying the knots since he was young, as I think it’s a good life skill to be learned. I didn’t spend time learning how to do so, and hence I didn’t teach my son. 😛
