This was the most fitting end I could see to this dreadfully uncomfortable set of earbuds. I made the same knot as I had sketched for my Earbuds cross stitch picture. I got the whole idea from tangled headphone cords in the first place, so maybe I should say it is "life imitating art which was imitating life."
I just need to get one of those ipod shuffles so the player is small enough to fit in the center hole. I started leaving a big enough hole, but the length of the cords dictated the final size.
