Crochet While Traveling

By: Michelle Y. Thomas


I use my old zipper close (gallon and quart size) bags for my craft projects. I then add to these zipper close type bags; my small craft scissors, the crochet hook(s) and the instructions. Also when making many small motifs for one large project I can also keep these small motifs in one gallon size zipper close bag, and drop it into my larger tote bag with all the yarn. This is a valuable resource for me so I can carry my portable projects in the Jeep or Harley, when we travel.

This is very helpful! I am going on vacation in a week, and will have plenty of yarn and projects with me. It will be helpful to keep them separated. I use a tote bag for my project and yarn, and I have cases for my crochet hooks that also hold my scissors. I think Im all set!

Very much like the coffee can I use an oatmeal container for my yarn and have no need to roll into ball out of skain! Very cool ideas tho I will have to try.

I use the new plastic coffee containers with the plastic lids. The container will hold your yarn, hooks, tape measure and sissors.The lids hold tight and you can cut a hole in the lid for the yarn to go through. If the hole isn't smooth, hold a flame under it for just a few seconds and it melts the plastic smooth.

I keep all my supplies in a zippered pencil bag. My crochet hooks, measuring tape, scissors, pencils, highlighters, eraser, buttons if needed, stitch markers, blunt craft needles, etc. My crochet hooks and blunt craft needles are stored in a roll-up crochet hook case but everything else is loose in the pencil bag. These bags are usually very inexpensive at the dollar store, and can be purchased with a clear window so you can see what you're grabbing out of your bag. This bag goes into whichever bag I am carrying my current project. I also keep the patterns I print out inside clear sheet protectors and store them in a notebook. The pattern I am currently working from goes in my project bag, still in the sheet protector to keep it in good condition so I can store it away with my other patterns after I am done with my project. I also love to use ziplock bags. Wind up your ball of yarn and place it in a gallon size ziplock bag. Set it beside you while you crochet or knit and your ball rolls around inside the bag and doesn't roll off onto the floor. Plus there's plenty of room in the bag for small projects to be thrown into the bag, hook and all, when I need to put it away. If I am working with a larger project I can pull up my last loop and tie a slip knot in it to hold my last stitch, put my hook in the bag with the ball of yarn and close the bag up leaving the yarn string hanging out and throw it all in my project bag. Very portable and goes everywhere I go.

Our mail room guy at work showed me how to use an old CDDVD holder for my yarn. I love it. Just unscrew the center stick and turn it upside down. It's great. Also, another friend showed me how to cut a hole in a plastic lid of a bowl. And that works great too.

I use zip-lock bags for EVERYTHING! I have a one-quart freezer weight bag I keep my knittingcrocheting notions in, ie, tape measure, stitch holders, stich markers, tapestry needles, etc. I usually reinforce the bottom and sides with wide tape so the needles don't push through the bag. The nice thing about the zipper is that you can keep the yarn cleandry in the bag and only have the strand "exposed" to elements (like if you're sunning at the beach!!!!!).
