Knitting 9-1-1

Okay, it’s not really an emergency; I’m just helping. I made a felted entrelac tote last year, and my knitting group took it up as a learning project. There’s one that’s not quite done. I feel slightly responsible because I introduced it, so I offered to help Sharon get past the last triangles so she can get on to the round bottom of the bag. She just doesn’t get enough time to knit. I love her colors; they are outside my usual palette. I finished the triangles last night, and now it’s on its way back to her.


Here’s another bit of 9-1-1: The emergency knitting bag. Turtlegirl posted about this on her blog, and it was impulse buy all the way for me. You can get yours here. It’s the perfect size to leave in the car with a sock or washcloth project tucked inside.


I cast on for the Josephine Top, after a bit of swatching. I swatched flat, but decided to knit this in the round, so who knows if I’m getting gauge? Too early to tell, but it’s pretty and this will be a very big gauge swatch.


Isn’t it pretty on the weeds in my back yard? The true color is somewhere in-between these two pinks.

  1. I must have the knitting emergency bag – they are out of stock – but I put my name on the list.

    Thanks for posting that one.

  2. If I bring one more “knitting” bag in this house I am gonna need a emergency first aid kit, LOL

    What a cool idea though

  3. I love that bag! I’ll need several I’m sure…..

  4. Neato mosquito bag, I think everyone needs one.
