Genius, huh?! I’m sure J wasn’t the first smart person to think of this cork solution, but as it had never occurred to me I thought I’d share it. As J is the toolmaster in our household (and I his eager apprentice), he made the holes in the cork first using an awl or somesuch, as pushing the needles in directly could easily bend them. Obviously over time the holes will widen and become too loose, but if you’re anything like me, finding more, ahem, corks won’t be an issue.
Only the best for my needles 🙂
