Liberty, Freedom, Emancipation for Yarn Balls!

When I flew down for my quilting classes, I brought a knitting project to work on a little bit on the plane. It is a hat for a friend of my son.

I sat down, got comfy, and took out the last yarn ball that I was going to use on the hat.

By the time the plane hand landed, I had not yet gotten to the point where I needed to use the last ball, and it rolled under the seat in front of me, without my noticing.

I was so excited to get off the plane, and see my mom and all of that, that I never noticed it was gone.

A couple days ago, I hopefully stopped at the knit shop and bought another one.

Lucky me, same dye lot.

Oh, and I went to the best coffee house in all of San Jose, CA last weekend - Bearfoot Coffee. The have a creme brulee like coffee drink w/ caramelized sugar on top. My husband declared it the best coffee on the planet.

I love the colour of the yarn. I’m surprised you were allowed to knit on the plane. I thought needles were forbidden luggage. Isn’t it great the shop still hade the same dye?

Not only can you bring knitting and crochet needles on board as carry-on, you can actually bring small sharp scissors (blades up to 4" in length) on board according to the TSA.

I checked this out just before we flew down to Ontario for the show.

TSA Permitted and Prohibited Items

I am not sure about sewing needles though. You would think that if you could bring a 4" sharp pair of scissors that you could bring a <4" sharp needle, but since the TSA doesn't explicitly mention it I would hate to chance it.
