EMERGENCY CROCHET KIT

Guest Author - Beverly Elrod

All too often, Iíve been at the doctors, waiting for a friend (whom Iíve dropped off somewhere), waiting for the school bell to release the kids for the day or otherwise waiting on something. Generally, Iíll have pen and paper to make another one of my notorious lists, but what about those times when you want to be creative or to work on a stitch youíve been perfecting? I think youíll find my emergency crochet kit an answer to your prayers.

First, youíll want to determine what you want to put your kit into. This could be anything from a toothbrush holder, mint tin, Skittles tin, pencil holder or any other item similar or maybe not so similar.

Hereís a list of some of the items Iíd keep in my Emergency Crochet KitÖ

1. Crochet hook of favorite size (if youíre using a tin, you may want to cut this hook down a bit and have a hole pierced in the end of it. This can, then, be put on a string or chain. This is so that it can be worn around the neck (while working with it) and if you drop it, itís no further than the end of the strings/chain itís hanging from.

2. Small fold-up scissors

3. A small skein of thread or yarn. If you wish to use a bigger skein of yarn, keep in mind that youíll need a larger container to keep it in and the idea of it being in a kit is so that itíll be easy to stash it in several different places without getting in the way or being too obvious.

4. A few small safety pins. These can be used as cable holders, stitch markers, small tapestry needle, needle threaded, etc.

Donít feel restricted to having just one emergency kit. Thereís many places you can store one; such as the car glove box, bathroom, purse, bedside table, gym bag or any place where it might be convenient to have or to get to.

Emergency crochet kits make great gifts for the crocheters in your life. Use them as a complimentary gift in the crochet swap groups youíre in. For craft fairs, yard sales, these can be sold (especially if you decorate the tins/containers) for upwards of $5.00 each.
