Full disclosure: I tried my hand at change ringing with handbells many years ago. I wasn't very good at it, and didn't stay with it long. But I used to love to write out the changes on graph paper, loving how the numbers that stood for bells moved back and forth and around. And afterwards, when I went back and re-read The Nine Tailors by Dorothy L. Sayers, the story made a lot more sense. :)
But it never in a million years would have occurred to me to use it for knitting stuff.
The Tsarina is brilliant.
