I’ve had a streak of bad luck lately, or at least a streak of poor planning. It seems that every time I leave the house to go somewhere I end up with a ridiculous amount of downtime (meeting up with a friend who’s late for coffee, sitting in a waiting room, or just getting to work early). And even worse, I haven’t been able to use that time for knitting.
I know! The horror!
Either I forget my knitting bag altogether, or I run out of yarn, or I left by pattern book on the coffee table at home. It’s very frustrating, because as a knitter, time not spent working on a project is wasted time. And I hate wasting time.
So, I’ve decided to make myself an Emergency Knitting Kit to put in the glove-box of the car.OK, it’s just a little project bag and the half-finished socks I started a couple months ago, but it’ll still work. Socks are perfect for this- simple, easy to do a row or two and put down, and small enough to be stashed in my car.
I know it’s silly, but I’ll definitely feel better knowing that I always have knitting ready and waiting.
Do you have Emergency Knitting?
