lots of knots

The Knot Fairy is in the house.

As I was weeding out Zia’s ever expanding toy collection, I came across several interesting and ingenious creations. It seems she’s become just a little bit knotty.

First up: the fashionable show pony, bedecked in pearls and a knotted sash.

Next, this traumatized animal that was mercilessly roped into pulling the covered wagon.

An array of hopelessly knotted necklaces

and another (the impressive knot system here is toward the bottom).

Last but not least, this amazing configuration that would put any seafaring man to shame…

..although it did render useless one of her favorite comfy dresses (which I was thrilled to banish anyway, since it was getting a little raggedy).

Does the Knot Fairy ever visit your house?
