I gave myself my first needles on my Birthday in February of 2011.
I decided that I was going to teach myself how to knit. I promised myself that some day I was going to be an “Amazing knitter!”
So here I am, far from amazing, obsessively purchasing yarn, teaching myself how to knit, and sharing that journey with you…
I am sitting here at 9:30pm PST typing up my “List of knitting” and I hear a door shut in the other room. I honestly got a little freaked out because my babies are supposed to be sleeping and my husband is at school till 10pm. I walk into Mae’s room and turn the lights on and she is sitting on her “big girl bed” (which she refuses to sleep in) wearing sunglasses and smelling like chap-stick and says to me “Mom. I need my glubs to sleep.”
So, I put her in her brother’s crib, “glubs” and all and told her to go back to bed.
TSA DOES allow knitting needles on airplanes. They also allow cross stitching, but no scissors.
How do I know this?
1. I looked it up on their website
2. I just got off a 5 hour flight from Vegas to New York with big metal US10 knitting needles, 2 babies and a husband.
Fun (unrelated) Fact of the day:
TSA does not require that I show identification for my babies. So that means anyone could just pick up any baby and fly with him/her. Isn’t that unsettling?
When I asked them why I don’t need to show ID, the lady said “people don’t typically put bombs in babies”
