I've been practicing tying them in a bunch of different ways (working end coming left, right, up and down; inside loop with the standing end on top and underneith; normal [working end in the loop] and "left-handed" [working end outside the loop]); thru rings, around a small post, and in free air. I'll have try your suggestions.

I was embarrassed on departing for a race a few weeks ago when I couldn't tie a bowline. That ain't gonna happen again .
