Ok, here's the deal .. I had some time to fill for a gig tonight and I pulled out an old stand-by of mine called "Knot Unexpected." It's a great effect that packs small and plays big. However, I have had some problems with the loop gimmick. I've tried different things to make the loop including glue, medical tape, Scotch tape, gaffers tape .. I even remember trying to sew the ends together.

Nothing has worked very well .. anyone have a better idea?? It's driving me knuts!

Yup -- Ron's re-released DVD "Hung Up on Ropes" describes a great method -- plus many other innovative effects you will use.

The upcoming June Linking ring one-man parade will have an effect with that loop.

I have had a sneak peek at the one man Parade Magic Iab mentioned; and it is jam packed with magical effects.
And as Funsway said, I Do have a fast and easy method of my own for making loops and sliding knots as well.
