I have the basic 20th century silk set and the picture on the instructions shows the red silk between 2 blue silks with each side showing knots with 2 ends sticking out. While it is very clear that you have to make a knot on one side I have no idea how to get a knot on the other side. The instructions don't explain how. Would appreciate some help either by pm if you feel this is exposure or just by answering openly on the Café. Thanks.

Why not PM me about that? I'm on the road today (as usual) but I will answer you when I get to my next room.

I love to combine 20th Century Silk with Silk to Egg as a routine instead of two isolated tricks. Each solves the short comings of the other. (I haven't performed that since last night in Dallas. LOL)

Interestingly, I believe the Silk to Egg was (originally) never a 'stand alone effect' but rather performed as a part of "Kling Klang', notably in the performance of Judson Cole. It was one of Charlie Miller's favorite platform effects and I think he wrote up about four variations in Genii's Magicana. Of course, the silk encycl. has even more!

While the knot the audience sees, has two ends, the other one is generally and lazily silk that are sewn together. You can, of course, cut the thread and tie them together so the continuity is there.

Those little dental rubber bands that come with Folding Coins can bind the ends of two silks together in a 'knot' ala Furst's Sympathetic Silks.

for combining effects try merging those two effects. Two red and one blue silk on each chair -- the left ones are tied together. One knot comes undone on the left and the two red silks on the right are knotted. Now the second knot disappears on the left and the blue silk on the right is between the two red ones.
