I'm a resourceful woman. Having worked in an environment where buying new pencils midseason could get you into budget trouble, I learned to scavenge and make do. Given a situation where the tools I need are unavailable, I'll find something to make it work. A MacGyver in training if you will. Like today. Today I forgot to throw my knitting finishing kit (a change purse with a tapestry needle, a yarn threader and a yarn cutter) in my bag before I went to work. I had 8 rows left on the first Crape Myrtle* sock that I knew I'd be able to finish before lunch time. Gah! How can I Kitchener stitch the toes together without a needle? I've made a paper clip into a crochet hook before, but this was something new.
And whaddya know, apparently paper clips can work for this too!
