    Thanks for the comments, y'all.

    The alpine butterfly is definitely a cool knot, and one that is now forever burned into memory.

    Funny...I've always known that as the Lineman's knot and didn't realize it was popular. I make mine by twisting the rope twice in the same spot, then bringing the resulting loop under the first twist and through the hole between the twists. TYOK

    Very useful knot.

    Thanks Kyle
    Just spotted this and made one up for a hang in two weeks time. Ingenious! Simple! And just what I need.
