Edited 6 Dec
Today’s post (achoo) will be a listing of links I’ve found to other sites about flying (achoo) with sticks and string. I will be taking my bamboo needles and not even checking my new addis (for fear of checked baggage going awol). Yes, I probably should learn to knit socks with two circs due to commuting (I ain’t going to chase that dpn under the seat) [thank you franklin] but …
Here’s my current list. Some might be out of date. I’ll add to it as I find. If you know of any good sites, please let me know. (how’s that for short choppy fragments?)

- TSA’s Permitted and Prohibited Items look under “sharp items” Scissors – metal with pointed tips and blades shorter than four inches are allowed in both carryon & checked. Hmm.. wow. My dpn’s are 4″ do ya think? ((I’m so tempted to just take the @#(*$& subway to JFK and go to the jet blue terminal and ask the security people there. Ok ok, I just want an excuse to knit sock and not do all the work I am procrastinating now. I’m in such trouble. I have a TON due in the next 24 and 48 hours.))
- TSA: Transporting Knitting Needles & Needlepoint Added 6 Dec with many many thanks to Jodie.
two unrelated bits:
a slow bday/graduation present to sara. i am going to try to convert her to wordpress. muwahh hah hah. i was going to wait to give this to her, but i was in the domain buying mood and uhm. well, did you know that i can’t find ducky fabric anywhere? (Sarah, I can’t find that orange zipper either.)
and why do all you awesome people live in places that are not very close to NYC (i.e. it’ll cost me more than a $2 subway ride?)? OR, CA, Chicago, Washington DC & area, Boston, NH, Philly … ARG!
