Margit Sage of Fiber Fiend

I was knitting my first pair of socks, and when I wasn't around, my then-boyfriend pulled a bunch of yarn out of the ball, tied my engagement ring on, and stuffed it back inside. He waited patiently for the ring to come out while we watched a movie and I knit. The funny thing is, socks are knit at a small gauge, and it took much longer than planned. After the movie, he said, "Why don't you keep knitting!" So, I did! About 45 minutes later the ring popped out when I gave the yarn a good tug. Surprise!
