OMG...so Turkey day has been awesome! We didn't have much Turkey, though (funny story), b/c my mother doing the frozen turkey breast thing, instead of the whole bird. Well, some of it had been sitting in out freezer at home since 2000. That's right, 2000. Needless to say, we ate a lot of ham and chicken....
So, the airports were pretty tame. I brought my bamboo needles so as to avoid any security issues. I figured, if I have to be there at 6 am, the last thing I need is for someone to hassle me about my size 7s. That, and I've heard of assuming security snatching needles from bags, and if someone made me drop ALL of my stitches, I'm pretty sure I'd go to jail that day. It wouldn't be pretty.
Knitting on the plane and in the terminal, I discovered some interesting things -- pretty much everyone is fascinated, but most are intimidated or just don't give a damn. A few people asked me what I was knitting (or how long I've been knitting....very popular question, and still don't know why), but generally, most would glance over and try to pretend that they were looking at something else. Kind of funny people-watching moment for me, really.
Oh, and VERY excited about this...I took someone's advice (an't remember who it was...sorry!) and looked up bamboo double-pointed needles on E-bay...They arrived at my house today, and were around $20 for a full set of like size 1 -size 13 or something...I am at my parents house right now, so I can't wait to get home to get them!
Well, if you're makin' a holiday sweater, be sure to put some extra ribbing in it -- I know that after all that eating, I need it!
