I wrote an earlier post about learning to tie knots. I've just had a major personal knot tying breakthrough (if such a thing can be said to exist). I've always had problems with my shoelaces untying. Laura can attest to this. One of the reasons I like velcro :)
I've recently learned that proper shoelace should be a square knot. Doing a little research, I found that I've been tying my shoes wrong all these years. Instead of tying a square knot (right-over-left half knot followed by a left-over-right knot), I've actually been tying a granny knot (two consecutive left-over-right knots). Apparently it makes all the difference.
I'm going to try some empirical testing by tying one shoe with a granny and the other with a square knot.
