Paracord: My favourite paracord to use is, (well I am not sure that it really is paracord, but it is labeled as such) I love to use 3 mm Paracord, it comes in so many different colours and is really wonderful to use:

Ashley Book of Knots This book is an encyclopaedia of knots. It may not be the first book you want to purchase to start knotting, but it will certainly become a part of your collection. The book has in excess of 3,800 entries, with over  7,000 illustrations. I personally have a copy and we will never be parted (well that is how good I think it is). This is I believe still on Amazon – click on the image below to purchase.

Des Pawson’s Knot Craft This was the book that actually got me up and running. The book has 35 rope-work projects, with simple to follow instructions. The book also includes other useful information, such as how long and how thick your rope should be for each project.

Knots by Gordon Perry A practical step-by-step guide to tying over 100 knots. Features easy-to-follow step-bys-step instruction for tying each knot. Includes stopper knots, loops, bends, hitches, binding and decorative knots. Gordon is also a member of this branch.
Swedish Fid or Splicing Fid This is a great tool for splicing, it allows you to part rope so that you can pass a strand of rope through the gap created. I personally like to round the edges with emery cloth, so that it does not cut into the rope.
Permaloc Needle The needle has a hollow end that is threaded. The idea is that when working with small cordage, the cord can be screwed into the end of the needle. Sometime if the cord is a bit on the small I side, I wrap some tape round it and then screw it into the needle. This is a useful tool when doing the smaller intricate work.
