Slowly, I read the 14 diagrams that showed me how to wrap a piece of rope in as intricate pattern around my fingers. Then--hey presto!--with one tug, the rope was supposed to slip away, knot-free!
For a start, is Phantasmagorical Fingers an official name for this kind of trick? If I use magic fingers instead, could native speakers undersatnd?
Second, what is KNOT LIKELY supposed to mean? From the context, I see it means there are still knots entangled among her fingers, but I wonder why she used knot likely instead of knot still or something like that.
