I was wondering why the gift wrap was so hard to cut. Oops! I was cutting the cord of my headphones. Not the cheesy white earbuds. The good full-size Sennheisers. They were lying on the table. Under the gift wrap. I didn't see them. I managed to mend them, sort of, with some electrical tape, but I began to think about all the time I spend ferreting around after my devices, and all the times I have dropped them and whatever they are tangled in while bounding up to answer the old school landline in the other room.
I also began to think about what I really like to make: problem solvers and practical items. Here's a new one, a pouch on a cord to hold my listening device, so I can listen and knit without danger of strangulation. Or decapitation. Bonus: a finished object in the first week of the New Year.
I'll probably have to break out the neon orange yarn and crochet a few more. But while I like the end result, I think my on-the-fly construction method on this one was overly complicated. Back to the drawing board.
You know, that's a shockingly obvious, yet delightful, idea. I never thought of it, but it would make things a lot easier when running around the house crafting, cleaning, cooking, or generally being productive.ReplyDelete
I am sorry to hear about your headphones, though I'm glad you were able to mend them!
