I get landed with a very simiar problem. My wife has a favorite
necklace with a thin silver chain which seems to be an as yet unknown
form of artifical life. As soon as it is taken off and put down in a
box, or in a purse, as random examples, it immediately ties itself
into knots. Not simple knots, Oh no, but knots such as only an
experienced sailing ship deckhand would know.

Who needs lego when you have puzzles such as this to work on?
