I was knitting.
Happily without a could in the sky.
Until I came across a knot in the yarn. Usually I don't despair or panic or get even a little bit discouraged but this time I did not feel like dealing with it. (What I was knitting is not an issue here because it is at an early stage and might be gone tomorrow or the day after...) But the knot had me put down the knitting and search for something else to do.
So I went to sort out the needle collection.
And found these small rubber teddy bears that I have never been successful with. They are supposed to hold together your needles but mine have always kept slipping off the needles while in the bag resulting in dropping stitches.
So the knot had me drill little holes to the heads of the teddies (I felt very uncomfortable doing it and kept telling them that now they would be of great use to me, but I wonder if it helped...) and take some rubber bands to connect these teddies together as a pair...as best seen here in the picture with yellow teddies. I did not have better bands and did not intend to go shopping for them, so I made do what had at hand.
Felt so pleased.
But yet did not want to deal with the knot.
In Iceland I received a lovely silk Lantern Moon knitting bag from a dear friend. Here at left. It is light and the size is good and having more portable projects than just one I made myself a cotton bag. Here at right. And hid the project with the knot in the blue bag. So the knot got taken care of.And then...
So really a knot every now and then is not after all a bad thing.
