Get Knotted

I’m sat quietly crocheting, Wimbledon is on TV, I’m lost in my own world of extreme creativity when suddenly Chris says, “Grab hold of this piece of string.”, rather stupidly I comply. He then asks me to tug it, the string is tied around a pencil and he demonstrates that he’s only holding the pencil, and because of the knot, I can’t pull it off. He beams proudly, “It’s an Icicle Hitch knot.”

At which point I hold up my crochet hook, “See this, it’s a crochet hook and if you take some yarn and do this…”

With the threat of being taught to crochet hanging over his head, Chris falls silent, I return to watching the tennis.
