Keeping with my newest series I present the "Half-assed Doctor". One of these days I will tie a classic as written. I attribute this attempt to Jabrowning. I took 300 grit sandpaper to my fingers and it really helped the shine of the floss as seen in picture 2. I couldn't be happier with Danville 4 strand. Fantastic synthetic floss. Granted, I have never used silk so I may have no idea what I'm missing.
