This is extensively quoted on the web, often on needlework sites, sometimes as verse and sometimes not, but always attributed to "an author unknown." Sometimes the wording is slightly changed, but on the whole it appears as:
"As a knot appears unexpectedly in a thread so disappointment blocks the smoothness of life. If a few deft strokes can untangle the skein life continues evenly. But if it cannot be corrected, then it must be quietly woven into the design. Thus the finished piece can still be beautiful although not exactly as planned."
