Crochet Emergency Kit


I always crochet while I am traveling across country. And I never forget what I need to productively kill time in the car. As a matter of fact you can read here what I take with me.

I am in a crochet group where many people have confessed to have taken hooks but forgotten the yarn, vice versa, or both while setting off on a trip, so I thought it would be interesting to compose a crochet emergency kit which will actually stay in the car, so as to make traveling more pleasurable. I am sure this will also be a great Christmas gift for your crochet friend. 

So, this is what I included. I took a simple, spacious food container (plastic box) and added a caddy (a small crate in this case) which I filled with sewing thread, measuring tape, scissors, and onto a crochet patch I attached stitch markers, a sewing and a tapestry needle.


Next I filled the box with yarn skeins and cakes, and slid different sizes of crochet hooks through a granny triangle to make the box complete.


The container had a transparent lid, so I painted it over and added my sticker. I played with photoshop here and added a funny crochet phrase: "4 U 2 DC". And that's it!

Do you also crochet while traveling? Do you have a kit and if so, what do (or would) you include?

I do crochet when I travel. I usually try to figure out something the day before I travel. I may take already existing projects.

Thank you for sharing, Julie. I mostly take projects in progress :)

What a great idea! I love the granny idea and the crocheted scrap idea! I've given up taking my crochet when I travel, because I easily get car-sick and then in the location I rarely get to do any crochet.

Thank you darl! I understand how you feel. Both my kids get car-sick. Luckily, I've been blessed and I can read and crochet in the car, though not both simultaneously, lol!

I love this cute crochet kit you made up to leave in the car when traveling on a long trip. The lid looks pretty painted white and I love the sticker and the crocheted flowers. This is a great gift idea for the crochet or knit lover.
