Grab a few items around the house and make a Wool Gypsy Wrist Distraff for your travels.
Strong cotton string
Cut 9 pieces of cotton string in 3 yard lengths
Fold in half, around a chair, leaving about 8-10 inches before knotting.
Once braided and off the chair, drape over wrist and find a comfortable amount to create the opening to move on and off the wrist/hand. Then take a small piece of cotton and secure through the braid, add a few beads and cut off the extra length.
