I used to drive a school bus. I never actually knitted while driving (the turns would have been awkward) but I will admit that visions of beautiful sweaters and afghans filled my mind as I drove. (Kids? What kids?) After my run I would often wait at the bus yard for my husband to come and drive me home. What better thing to do with an idle hour than knit? However, sometimes I would forget (or lose) my cable needle... and then, what to do?? Cable needles are in short supply in industrial parks, but there's lots of coffee- and I discovered that a stir stick will do for a cable needle or stitch holder in a pinch.
What's the weirdest thing you've ever adapted to your knitting needs? Leave a comment, I'd love to hear!
