I found an interesting and easy to use way of making Celtic and other knots. It's an open source java program called Knotwork Editor and you can get it from http://mac.softpedia.com/get/Math-Scien ... itor.shtml. Here's how easy it is.

I thought Java apps were cross platform. There's no exe file but there is an MS-DOS Batch file so I suppose knot (oops...typo :oops: :hehe )

Thank you for the source.
A small selection (no selection - save as) ... and it would be very good ...

An undo function would be nice too.

Molly, this one sounds interesting as you can work it together with Inkscape.

I've been playing with it a little and it's a bit buggy but if the developer continues work on it, I reckon it could turn into something really good. There's nothing lazier than this method Lyle - just point and click!

It would be cool to be able to take points and then let the knots convolve with the points like using Voronoi stipple to do the traveling salesman plots. Don't like even creating the dots; now you know how lazy I am. lol
