Not easy

I got the knots down after a bit, they were smaller than I expected BUT trying to get the ends of the knot into that tiny little end was next to impossible. I did my best to twist them into the cap end and no matter how hard I tried by the time I got them INTO the cap end, I had glue on everything they were uneven and the end result was NOT very pretty. She made it look so easy, maybe it's just me but I doubt it.
