Slipping From My Brain

Ever completely forget something you’ve done a million times?  My brain decided it did not remember how to make a slipknot this morning.  I’m made TONS of them while casting on knitting and crochet projects.

I’m not sure what happened.  Perhaps it’s the new fake nails I put on last night.  Perhaps I was thinking too hard about it.  Making a slipknot is something I just do.  I don’t think about it.  My fingers have that muscle memory built into them, just like knitting and purling.

We all have so-called “brain farts” from time to time.  It’s just funny when it happens because no matter how hard you try, you just can’t do the simple task that you want to do, no matter how many times you’ve done it.  Ever happen to you?


One thought on “Slipping From My Brain

  1. I become all fingers and thumbs if someone is watching me knit or crochet, and trying to show someone how to do it makes me even worse. Muscle memory is a good theory. I think I must have that.
