There was no knotting as such, the theme of the evening was eating (which I excelled at) and also messing about with rope tricks and games.  Bob managed to launch a spinning top through the air and almost embed itself in the side of a boat!

Jeff Wyatt also brought along to the meeting two wonderful examples of braided rope work, framing a clock and a plate. I am not sure that the photos here actually do the rope work justice.

Here are two fine examples of braiding:
