Try to identify 15 knot names in the following story:
She and her cat live in a small, square house with a garage, high above a reef overlooking Lark's Head Bay. Every day except Sundays, she walks to town down Turk's Head Road, around Fisherman's Bend, and into the small village of Knottingham. On one of these treks to town, she slipped and cut her leg on a pipe. Blood ran down her leg as she tried to stand up, but her large girth prevented her from righting herself.
Just then, a stevedore came around the bend. He ran over to granny and put an Englishman's tie around her leg as a blood stopper. Then he added a stick, clinched it with a nail, and suggested she see a surgeon. The stevedore helped her into town to the doctor's office. Granny thanked the stevedore and gave him a figure-eight medallion on a lanyard that had belonged to an old sailor named Sheepshank.
Can you identify the most common use for each knot below?
