So in addition to working in an office at a sign company, I also substitute teach. In my prep hours I usually knit. I was doing elementary art this past Thursday and I forgot to being my cable needle even though I was working on a project that required one. Luckily, I was in an art room and knew I could get creative! First I tried a pipe cleaner and the yarn stuck on it. I continued to search around until I found a scrap of some kind of wire. Turns out it was a perfect size and got the job done! So there is a picture of my makeshift cable needle. Next time you are stuck without an item your knitting requires- get creative!
