A tiny bit of knitting



I haven't been knitting much lately. You'd think I would have, because I do believe it helps calm my nerves, but I just couldn't get to it. It's a shame airlines don't allow knitting, otherwise, I would have finished my top by now and probably the scarf too. But I couldn't even bring my knitting since I traveled with hand luggage only. When I ran into a few stores to buy my mother some nightgowns, I thought about picking up some yarn (they sell that in the same -cheap textile- stores) but they didn't have the right needles. Oh well.
So it's been a few rows here and there, and some more rows yesterday evening when we finally had a few hours to relax and to listen to some music.
It's a lot of mindless stockinette, but that's just what I need right now.

  1. This is just lovely. Shame that you couldn't bring your knitting, I did on a recent trip and had no problems getting needles through security! However, I still didn't knit much on the plane because of wrangling children. :)

    1. Thank you! I've heard they let you take knitting on national flights in the US, but on intercontinental flights to and from the Netherlands it's never allowed.

  2. How silly to ban knitting on the plane. I have to be honest, i was allowed to bring knitting when I flew from the east coast to the west coast but I couldn't concentrate on it and ended up doing nothing...what a waste of 5+hours!!

    1. Ha, that's what flying does to you. I sometimes wonder if they release something in the air, but maybe it's just how our minds and bodys work. I always bring notebooks, planners and pens, thinking I could use those ten hour flights to brainstorm and plan, but I never do. I just watch a movie, listen to music and try to sleep.
