The challenge today (oops yesterday) is (was) to:
“Write a descriptive introduction about a tool you use for your craft, then write a dialogue between yourself & this item.”
The tool I am lost without in knitting is my needle gauge – the problem is – I can never find it when I most need it! Hence a delay in putting up this post!
The needle gauge I have is made of white plastic and is approximately 3″ by 2″ in size. It’s sturdy and a handy size to carry around. It is perfect for:
- double checking needles where the size mark is fading
- checking my circular needles where the size has completely worn off the wire
- when picking up a long forgotten WIP and checking what needles I’m working with
Over the past few weeks I have searched high and low for it and have just finished another attempt at finding it to no avail. My message to my needle gauge:
TJFrog: “Our relationship is one of love and hate. I love it when you are close by and available to use. I hate it when you go into hiding and I can’t find you when I need you! Recently you have been hiding a lot and this last period is the longest absence ever. I realise you get moved around from project bag to project bag and have no fixed abode. Please come out of hiding and we can negotiate a permanent home for you.”
Waiting patiently for it to appear . . .
Bye for now.
