Have you ever accidentally grabbed the wrong cord and tried to shove it in the port only to realize it's the wrong one? What about the kids or your spouse....have you or they ever argued over whose cord or charger it is? This is very annoying, especially when you know it is yours!I recently solved these problems by simply crocheting all the wires, cords and cables that go to all my personal electronic devices around the house. Now nobody can tell me they're not mine!
Here are SIX GREAT reasons why crocheting your wires is a good idea:
Heres one that's not on the list:
It's a great way to use up all those small scraps of yarn left after other projects!
How To Crochet Your Wires:
Most wires take between 5 and 10 minutes to crochet. It is so quick and easy that I covered two wires as stocking stuffers in the 13 minutes it took to hard boil my eggs for the week!
Simply start with a loop and single crochet from one end to the other. Crochet right around the hanging end! If you switch colors, use a square knot to connect and simply crochet around the hanging ends as you go (see pictures below). When you are done just use a yarn needle to weave in the last remaining thread. Snip off any extra thread pieces hanging out and you are done! It's that simple!
