Sounds pretty creative to me! AND, if you ever decide to play the drums.....

And don't feel bad. This girl is knitting with two moving lines on a computer screen.....

Hey Elaine!!! It's good to have you back!

That was me Elaine learning with the broomstick lace. I was really using the end of a extended paint handle. Just like a broom!

Good to see you posting again!

Chops sticks' ends are not sharp, are they? How do you get it into the yarn? I couldn't help smiling when I image that.

I tend to be impulsive and when I don't have the right tools for something I tend to improvise. When I cut my hair the other day I used masking tape to make the lines of where I was going to buzz my hair. I did a mohawk and the tape made a straight line so even though I couldn't see the back of my head well, I still was able to do it straight.

One day when I was a kid I couldn't find knitting needles so I used two wooden pencils with their ends sharpened. It was fun but still not as good as the real thing...

Now that is brilliant!

I have gotten the hang of cutting my hair using a mirror on one wall and another mirror angled on the other. It takes time to figure out how to work with a reflected reflection, but over the years I got the hang of it and when I moved and no longer had the extra mirror option I managed to still cut the back of my hair pretty well (after learning the hard way NOT to ask my hubby to cut it... I started it shoulder length, he ended it ear length thank goodness I managed to make it look cute anyway). I know, ramble, ramble, but I'm really impressed with your masking tape idea!
