Ever had to find a way to get your projects done on-the-run?
Today finds me knitting around a birthday (Boy Child’s to be exact-Happy 16th!!), church, laundry, and getting school stuff done. I believe I must have been spoiled at my last job since I could find time to knit and spin on lunch breaks and during the after-school programs. I can tell this year may be a little trickier. I did find the recess duty to be a no-brainer. But everything else is catch-as-catch-can.
Fortunately, I’m well-equipped. 😉
You have seen my water bottles that carry my spindles-an idea taken from RESPECT THE SPINDLE by Abby Franquemont.
That’s kind of old hat…I have been carrying both bottles, actually. The bottle with my moosie is in my car’s glove compartment with some brown alpaca. Snug as a bug in a rug. 🙂
Even though you’ve all seen these before, I still thought I’d share why I have so much love for the namaste urban hip holster bags. I’ve loved some of the letters off mine, but they are pretty handsome bags, I think. And they will obviously last the years of bustle and hustle.
They’re perfect for projects like socks, baby things, shawls, hats, gloves and mitts and other small to medium-sized projects (or parts to larger ones-like sleeves to a sweater or something).
It may look tiny, but look how much fits in it! In the large section, I have the yarn and needles. The needles sit in a holder I got from an etsy seller.
I spun the yarn a while ago and am only just now getting around to knitting it. This yarn cake is over 500 yds! But it all fits.
This knit is a shawlette I am working on for my mil. It’s the ginkgo shoulderette shawl on ravelry. I’m not so sure blue makes much sense to the logical side of me for a leafy-motif, lol. But, the whimsical side of me thinks it’ll be pretty cute!
Now, in the small section are the little bits like my row counter, tape measure, needles, yarn cutter, crochet hook for dropped stitches, row markers, fingernail clipper and file, etc., etc.
The whole thing is very unobtrusive as I walk the halls or stand at the line for hall and cafeteria duty. And the kids love to see how far I have gotten since the last time they saw me with it. Just this past week, I was knitting in between professional development meetings at my school and the librarian said, “I love how you have everything together, just ready to go. You take it out and get something done with your little bits of time…”
The story of my life!
