is this calligraphy, or knot?

As usual, I have been quite busy of late, but here are some knot-drawings from classes last semester.

Some of the first, rather messy attempts (click to enlarge):

Mostly I have been decorating index cards:

Note the fish (upper right) and the mouse.

Eventually I decided to try larger numbers of interlocking rings; the first few were freehand, with varying success.

With the aid of a compass, perfection:

Until I tried nine rings.

Finally, a few more butterflies.
