Inktober 2021 Day #4: KNOT. This is one of those fun ones that just sort of unfolded in my Brain. It might not be much to look at, but the subconscious thought process that produced this was fun. I started thinking about knots, and what can be done with them (being an Eagle Scout and Scoutmaster, I spend a fair amount of time tying, teaching, and thinking about knots). As always, I wanted to do something a little different. I decided to kick the brainstorming into the background so I could prep for bed last night, but within moments, my Brain came back to me with “what about a monkey’s fist knot?” And here you have it, the monkey comparing the knot to an actual monkey fist and trying to figure out just why someone named it that.
