Do you have an emergency project?

I’m sure you’ve been in this situation before.

It was Saturday, and we were headed out to a football game (perfect knitting time!). BUT, my Charleston Tee required complicated shaping and just wasn’t a good football-watching project. Ack! What do you do?

The need for an emergency project

Fortunately, I always have an emergency project.

I have memorized the Churchmouse Basic Sock pattern, and I always have a pair of Size 1, 9″ Circulars and some sock yarn at the ready:

Knit Picks Socks

This is Knit Picks Felici Sock yarn… and I cast on at the game!


Do you have an emergency project at the ready?


This week, I’m reading From Hardtack to Homefries: An Uncommon History of American Cooks and Meals… and it’s really interesting!

I love both food and American history, so this book is a great combo!

That’s what I’ve been up to this week… how about you? I hope you have an awesome Wednesday, and get some great knitting/crocheting done this week!
