My birthday was last week and I recieved an amazon.com gift certificatefrom one of my sisters and used it for a couple of books, one of which is 'The Book of Decorative Knots by Peter Owen'. I bought this book a few years ago, but sent my copy to a friend in Iraq last year knowing I'd eventually replace it. It's a great book for a beginner with easy to follow diagrams on lots of decorative knots.
I also recieved a little money from both of my grandmothers and put that together for a new Jetbeam C-LE V2 flashlight, bought from Bug Out Gear USA. I added a split ring and carabiner to one of my 'Type I' OD Green paracord lanyard/wrist straps. This is an updated version of the C-LE with a 'clickie' tailcap, where the other one I have has the 'twisty' head to turn on the light and switch between the 5 outputs of the light.
