Way ahead of you buddy!
Want to go knot crazy? Find a copy of Ashleys Book of Knots.
There are 7000 knots to play with!!!
It took me years to learn to tie a bowline knot. Finally someone taught me the up through the bunny hole around the tree and back down the bunny hole thing. It worked but for a while i wanted to chop down the tree and kill the bunny.
Now i can tie it regulary one handed left handed and left handed one hand.
Look at the bushclass badic knots for a start also.
Taut Line Hitch
These see me through most of my outdoors adventures.
Square Knot - Just to easy to not have that one handy. Way better than a granny knot!
Taught Line Hitch - Great for ridge line, tie outs ect. Easy to learn, quick to tie. Super useful.
Prussic - If your going to hang a tarp over a ridge line, you should learn this. Makes tensioning the tarp super easy.
Canadian Jam Knot - I've heard it described as a bushcraft zip tie. Easy to learn and quick to tie.
Lashing - Whether you're setting up a tripod for cooking or putting together a frame for shelter learning proper lashing technique is paramount.
Clove Hitch - You'll need this to start and end you lashings with.
