A nice review of Knot it!

Hey, John, I just recently picked up "knot it!" while shopping at my local REI. A few years ago I starting learning knots so I could become a better outdoorsman, but I kept finding that I would forget the knots when I needed them, even after practicing over and over. I guess knot-tying isn't in my blood. "knot it!" has really helped me to step up my game. The illustrations are perfect and I'm learning (and relearning) knots faster than I expected. Just a few minutes ago I found your website and saw that you even have knot-tying animations -- PERFECT! I'm definitely going to buy your iPhone app, since I always take my phone with me to the woods. Thanks for the amazing resource, I believe it's the first and last knot-tying reference anyone (or at least me) would ever need. Triple thumbs up, John.
