I will be travelling to Britain in a few months and will be spending a long time on a plane. A LONG time! Three flights in all, two short ones and ten hour one. And then I have to do it all in reverse two weeks later.
So I’m looking for ideas for something to knit on those lovely ten hour flights, and while sitting in airports, waiting. It seems to be hard to find specific rules for UK airports, but I thought I’d take some wooden knitting needles (home made from dowels). After all, they can’t be considered any more dangerous than a pencil! The question is....what shall I knit?
The project (or projects) needs to be something that I can pick up and put down easily, so preferably no pencil and paper required, or referring to a complex pattern. Nothing that will need lots of colour changes as I won’t be able to take scissors on the plane. But not so easy that I get bored with it quickly.
Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to find a suitable airline-friendly project for me. Links are good. Type of yarn doesn’t matter, as long as I can substitute it for something vegan (non-animal fibre). But nothing felted, as I don't use wool.
I intend to put together a mini-prize for a winner, drawn at random from the list of ideas. Tell your friends, mention it on your blog! It won't be specifically a knitting prize, so non-knitters will enjoy it too, and I will mail anywhere in the world. I'm picturing a little box, filled with little treasures. I will start collecting things soon.
Leave your comments on this post - I will put a link to it at the top of the sidebar so others can find it easily.
