Portable Crochet Project Ideas

Guest Author - Beverly Elrod

I desperately hate sitting at a doctor’s office, dentist office, lawyer’s office and any other place where I have to wait a while before I can see the person I’m there to see. Even after being called back…out of the waiting room and into an interior examination room. And what do I do there? I sit some more. I find these are opportune times to pull out my hook and yarn and work on some of those projects that I don’t get around to while I’m at home.

I don’t recommend bringing a bedspread, afghan or tablecloth. These items can be very big (depending on the pattern) and can be cumbersome, bulky and frowned upon by not only the people who are being deprived of the area that these items are spread out into, but also the employees of the doctor’s office.

It can be distracting to someone who’s attempting to do their work while being drawn to your crocheting. Or, it might also be irritating to someone who was brought up with the ideals of how someone should act while being in a public place and they might feel that crafts and hobbies should not be done in public buildings while conducting business or waiting to see someone.

Therefore, I recommend that you carry small projects which will not give someone reason to be upset or distracted. This can be done in several different ways. For example, if you’re making a granny square blanket you can bring the yarn needed for those squares and just crochet the squares while at the doctor’s office. Once you’re home, you can attach these newly created squares to your blanket/bedspread/tablecloth.

Another helpful tip might be to bring one hook and a few skeins of yarn so that you can crochet a small project. I’ve already mentioned working up some granny squares. How about working up some hats, scarves, pot holders, hot pads, scarves, mittens or gloves, fridgies, miniature teddy bears, aragumi and other small toys? Working with a small project is less intrusive and doesn’t look like you’re trying to take over the doctor’s office.

How these small projects area carried can also make a difference on how others portray us. Carrying a huge bag; such as the one you might have your afghan comfortably tucked away in might be too much. It might be better to use a very small tote which is less the size of the purse you carry, yet big enough to carry the yarn needed for your project.
