The Certain Knot

If you need a knot, animated knots by Grog is a great resource -- very clear, very usable visuals for tying knots for every need. I used it to make a "double fisherman's bend" knot to rescue the draw string in a pair of running shorts of which I'm very fond.

My recommendations end there and become condemnations. The draw string had been badly abused by the clothes dryer, a Frigidaire, which I do not recommend since it eats so many strings, glove tips, and much else. And the really fun "feature" is how it projects dry clothing onto the floor when you carelessly open the door to retrieve the clothes.
