Airport Knitting!

On mitten 2 of 2 – these are going spectacularly quickly!

It’s always so stressful putting projects on the needles through airport security, even though I know this particular set has successfully been through this airport security before. I think I’ve heard too many horror stories of people losing projects or having to take them off the needles before!

  1. I use to travel a lot for my job, about once a month or so, and I always took my knitting. There were three things I always did before I went through airport security. I carried a padded self addressed stamped envelope large enough for the needles, I put a lifeline in my knitting before I left the house and I carried an extra set of needles in my checked luggage. This way I could send the needles home if airport security decided I couldn’t have them in my carry on and when I got to where I was going I had my extra set and my lifeline so I could continue knitting on my trip. I never had to use my envelope, but I always felt better know it was there if I needed it.


    1. Thanks! I flew Icelandair from Keflavík Airport like I always do and they didn’t have a problem with it. I think if I stick to small wood needles I should be fine. Metal would be too much of a gamble I think. It’s funny how these things can vary so much from airport to airport.
