* ak= any knitter
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.

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...)

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

Have a great trip!
