It’s been absolutely marvellous getting regularly tied up in rope more regularly. My friend really enjoyed his first experimentations with rope, and has decided that this is a good thing that must be done more!
So he came up to visit again this month, and I introduced him to the Karada tie. I’ve been tied in karada quite a few times before – Dionysos was partial to it, and Kiana has done some lovely ones on me. My friend picked up how to do it very quickly!
This was his very first try. As such, we practised it over the clothes.
He did extremely well! There was a lot of back and forthing to the instructions, and it was useful that I’d been tied in it before – I knew how loose to keep it at the back of my neck, and was able to hold various pieces of rope out of the way while he tied things.
He was delighted with how it all came together. So was I! And so, after some photos in the sunny garden, we proceeded to undo it all, take my clothes off … and do it all over again, only better
But those pictures are for another post.
Given my rope friend will be a regular addition, I’m working on a cast name for him!
