Traveling with Knitting for the Holidays
smaller projects are more mobile
but make sure to bring a little more than you think-I’ve been burned by that before!
Bring something that you can easily pick up and put down (if it’s a longer repeat is it going to throw you off?)
For Caitlyn-dk or larger is better for car knitting and conversation knitting
The flip side is-fingering weight you are less likely to run out
If you are flying-knitting needles are allowed! I’ve never had a problem, be aware of you scissors (One idea is thumbnail clippers 🙂 )
Circular needles help your odds of not dropping and losing a needle
