Love at First Bight!

kitten has had a busy week, so the blogs had to shift to the back burner for a few days, but that certainly does not mean that the training did.  In fact, Sir and i did lots of training with Rope!  kitten loves Rope, in fact, when Sir did the 1st roping on me, it was Love at first Bight!
During the course of kitten's training by Sir, which is done on a daily basis in most cases, barring unforeseen circumstances.  W/we work on nipple play and building my pain tolerance with pegging and clamping.  W/we review the various positions and their purpose.  He instructs me on different rope bondage styles and techniques, which kitten just absolutely fell in love with!!!.  Sir even got me a cute bumper sticker that says, "Rope Marks Are Beautiful."  And thus, the research began:  Numerous hours and countless websites were searched in order to bring this posting together - hope you enjoy it!

In knot tying, a bight is a curved section, slack part, or loop between the two ends of a rope, string, or yarn. An important concept, the term is used extensively in the description of knots and the discourse of knotting and related subjects.

In the bight
The phrase in the bight (or on a bight) means a bight of line is itself being used to make a knot. Specifically this means that the knot can be formed without access to the ends of the rope.[3] This can be an important property for knots used in situations where the ends of the rope are inaccessible, such as forming a fixed loop in the middle of a long climbing rope.

Many knots normally tied with an end also have a form which is tied in the bight, for instance the bowline and the bowline on a bight. In other cases a knot being tied in the bight is a matter of the method of tying rather than a difference in the completed form of the knot. For example the clove hitch can be made in the bight if it is being slipped over the end of a post but not if being cast onto a closed ring, which requires access to an end of the rope. Other knots, such as the overhand knot, cannot be tied in the bight without changing their final form.
Rope Marks Are Beautiful! 
This is a partial list of bondage positions and methods.

    "If it is important to you, you will find a way. If not, you'll find an excuse."
