Crochet in the Car

Sunday, June 27, 2010

I pack a lot of crafting when I travel – more when I don’t have a specific project in mind.  I’m never sure what I’ll be in the mood for and I really dislike to be idle.  For a spur-of-the-moment weekend trip, I packed a big tote with tons of embroidery floss and a tiny box filled with beads.  One of the projects I finished was while sitting in my car for an hour, a very tiny bracelet:

It was for a very petite girl – I do not have unusually large knees.

This is what it looked like while I was working in the [parked] car.  While it rained.  Waiting for a ball game to begin.  Good thing I had that hat along or there would have been beads everywhere.

I’m glad embroidery floss is so compact, I was able to take lots of colors with me.  Those metal mint containers are also fantastic to store beads in because they close very tightly.

I never saw a blue tractor before, so I stopped on the side of the road to take the picture below.  Unfortunately, I just realized that there must be something wrong with the card in my camera – all the pictures I’d taken the day before at the seacoast are gone.  The camera is new, but I guess after 5 years, the card needs to be replaced, so I will have to upgrade it tomorrow.

  1. I always have something in the van. I have an in-home childcare. Twice a day during the school year I'd have to sit in line waiting for either preschool kids or older kids. I make projects for thepinkcross.org (The Pink Cross Foundation) who helps men/women trapped in the adult industry to get out and rebuild there lives. They use my hats/purses/handbags etc for love gifts on outreaches, mailings and conventions. Anyway, it's a never ending need so I'm ALWaYS working on it. I would always have hook/yarn in hand as I waited in line for the kiddos. Long trips? I'll take it alone but I have to break often because I get carsick. :(

    Thanks for the article!

  2. I love the crochet bracelet. I've never tried crocheting with beads. It sounds hard but I'm sure it isn't. I must learn it soon.
