Enbloc starts the best threads!

Even though this thread is 'lashing', I love using a friction hitch when tarping things.
Here's one. I go around the mainline a couple more times with mine when finishing.

Yeah, this is a great knot for setting up tents/hammocks. Especially when you're trying to save ounces and don't want to have hardware for tensioning lines.
