I know all the physicists say matter is conserved but I'm not convinced. I swear matter enters and leaves the universe in the form of stitch markers, double pointed needles, and t-pins. And I'm also pretty sure tape measures all go to conferences to for a week at a time and then suddenly come back. I think scissors do the same thing. How else can you explain it when one day I can't find a tape measure to save my own life knowing full well that I own at least ten and a week later, I find them everywhere. Something has to be going on here. Anyway, I finished the Annie shawl out of the Noro Sekku. I couldn't find my t-pins anywhere but I did have a bunch of common pins and they actually worked just fine.
