This is my row of hooks on a piece of wood, made this afternoon in woodwork. It is, on the face of it, a key holder, but I am planning to use it more for paraphernalia and that kind of thing. Stop and think about it for a minute – if a burglar breaks into your house and they see a key-shaped row of hooks, they will immediately know that it is a holder for keys. And if they steal all of your keys you are in all sorts of trouble. Whereas if it is used for paraphernalia they will be momentarily baffled and quite possibly forget what they broke in for.
I haven’t decided exactly what kinds of paraphernalia yet. Possibly hats, gloves and rulers. Or nine different categories of paperclip. Something that can be hung up, anyway. Please feel free to make suggestions.
Tomorrow I will be doing sports all day. My tracksuit bottoms will have their annual airing. You can of course follow all of this and more via the Twitter hashtag #craftsportweek.
