About a month ago, I won a giveaway on the blog Woolen Diversions. I was super excited about the prize considering it was the Knitter’s Pride Karbonz Interchangeable Needle Set. I had been really wanting a interchangeable set, as I am tired of the excessive number of needles in my house. I was convinced the knitting angels must have heard me 😇
Well the Karbonz Set arrived and I could not wait to get them in action! I picked my project (a cute cable tam hat from Yarn Owl Patterns) and I was all ready to get it going. This was Wednesday. I decided to hold off on starting until Friday as I would be traveling to Los Angeles. However, Wednesday night my mind registered a problem:
Airline travel and pointy metal needles…a huge wrench could be thrown into my afternoon of knitting!
Okay so Sam isn’t speaking the truth, but the meme is too funny. Knitting needles are allowed, yet these Karbonz needles are pointy! I immediately took to Ravelry to see if anyone had any insight into this matter. The consensus seemed to be that I should not carry-on anything I do not want to risk being confiscated. *Ugh* I guess I will be working with my good ol’ bamboo circulars while hanging out at San Francisco International. Karbonz Set…enjoy the ride under the plane and see you in Los Angeles!
Anyone have any knitting/travel stories or tips? What tools do you usually carry on?
