No shit. True story. Here’s how it goes.
|In this picture, there is a thing which can save a knitter's life. Can you find it?|
Last night I was knitting on the train that took me back home from work. (That’s the great thing about knitting : you can do it in public transports, whereas you can’t sew. Needles (circular are even better !) your current ball of yarn, and you’re set !) Anyway, back to the story.
I was doing my stuff and everything was fine, when suddenly I dropped a stitch. I was all « ohmygodIdroppedastitchIdon’thaveacrochethowthehellamIgoingtofixthat ? » but then I told my self, « stop panicking bitch, breathe deep and look in your bag if there’s something you could make do with ! » And there it was – a bobby pin !
I managed to grab my dropped stitch with it and fix it as I would have done with a crochet, and went on with my knitting.
Moral of the story : bobby pins can help you out of the worst situations. Even a possible shuttle crash.
