Here is ten days’ worth of my Cobblestone. Not bad, if I say so myself.
(Sorry for the blurry photo, ’tis the season when I’m never home during daylight.)
At first it was quite a boring knit (round and round and round we go…) but it turned out to be just the thing I needed for these last ten days. It’s perfect to knit on while chatting to family over skype, while lying in a hotel bed completely braindead from work, while sitting on the plane eagerly waiting to get home.
Speaking of planes, while I usually prefer to avoid risk and simply stuff my knitting in the checked-in luggage, this time I decided to consult with the airport staff first. It being a Swedish airport, I figured they’d be quite familiar with knitting and wouldn’t make a crazy face at me. I was correct. The lady at the check-in kindly referred me to her colleague who knew more on the topic, and she told me it would be fine as long as I pointed it out to the security officers. So when I came to security, I took one plastic basket for my laptop and one for my knitting. :) Of course, none of the people would tell me that they were 100% sure I could take it on (no one ever will, as it always depends on the person sitting behind the scanning machine), but everyone was very kind and warm, which made me confident enough to take the risk of potentially losing my needles. So there’s one good airport experience for you. :)
