Here’s a handy trick of the trade that allows long extension chords (or other types of long lines like rope or tubing) to be stored in a way that prevents tangles and allows one handed playing out of the stored line.
Lex shot me this tip from BoingBoing and the comments noted that this was just a standard crochet knot. That quickly turned into a discussion on guys crocheting (like Rosie Grier) and this comment followed, which cracked me up.
I knit on the trolley down where I live. Maybe I do get shunned by the guys… but ladies love it and it’s a guaranteed conversation starter.
What’s more manly: looking ‘cool’ in the front of the guys, or constantly getting chatted up by beautiful women?
So keep learning new things and don’t be too concerned with looking ridiculous, you may even get chatted up.
