Knitting...the mother of, well, everything

History says that the Tinkertoy was invented by by Charles H. Pajeau and Robert Pettit after they saw some kids playing with pencils and empty thread spools (at least history as told by Wikipedia here) but I know better.



They were invented by a knitter who had way too many stitches on 6 double pointed needles and who happened to have a few wine corks handy.

    ... and God knows you and David have lots of spare wine corks around the house!

    Sorry to hear about the olive oil.

    Love,
