Proposed changes to Knot Tying. Some knots are more useful than others, so I am proposing that requirement 8 be divided into two. The first part consists of ten essential knots, none of which are optional. The second is a list of knots from which to choose ten others. I have added the Siberian hitch, the trucker's hitch, the cleat hitch, Canadian jam knot, and the marlinspike hitch to the second list, as these are incredibly useful knots to know (I use them all the time). I added the overhand to the essential list, as it is fundamental.

I've made an attempt to list the knots by by grouping similar knots together and then listing them within each group by ascending order of difficulty. (The list had been listed alphabetically). In some cases, knowing how to tie one of these (such as the overhand) is the first step in tying the next (such as the square).

8. Be able to tie the following essential knots from memory, know their common uses and limitations, and demonstrate how they are used.
