for want of a needle an hour is lost
Say you were leaving tomorrow for a remote location on a Navajo sheep ranch and you had stuff to do up the wazoo or is it out the wazoo...oh, what is a wazoo anyway? Equipment to check, recharge and pack , clothes to wash , deadlines for clients, a vomiting itchy dog, a 16 year old who went to school saying he might be getting sick (although blessedly neither itchy nor vomiting) , a 13 year old with a high maintenance homework assignment that will be due tomorrow and requiring your attention as he struggles through it .....

wouldn't you find time to run to a yarn store for some size 4 circulars, even though you have the world's largest collection of size 5 needles in all configurations, so you can knit what you have in mind on the plane ride?

I thought so.

But of course that's what I'd do! And that's what you must do too.

I would have sent the 16 year old and made him get some 7-Up for the dog on the way back, but I'm evil and stuff.

Have a safe/good trip!

As a fellow member of the every size 5 in the universe and their cousins club, I tell you that of course you must go get that 4! Quick before the shop closes.

No doubt. Absolutely no doubt about it.

Bon voyage! Vaya con dios! Semper fi! Catch you on the backside!

Sheesh, I can't even believe you'd have to ask us that. (Although if you hadn't I would never have read Cookie's brilliant idea...)

Norma said...

Ayup. But Cookie's idea also rocks the house. :D

Have a great trip!
