Summer Holiday?

Our SP10 hostess is quizzing us again with a couple of questions, so I thought I would play along.

With the weather turning warmer, many of you are thinking of traveling (though some of you have just returned, you can play along). 1) What do you pack to knit? and 2) What do you hope to shop for?

Assume that you will be gone for ten days to someplace "foreign" that is known for having great knitting locations. (Bonus: Where would you go on a "knitting holiday"?)


Hmmm, a knitting holiday, my immediate reaction was to go to New York, I've never been to the US and I could take in the sites and visit some of the local yarn stores we read about, of course Habu would be top of my list of places to visit, and if I was really going I would have a long list of places to visit and things to see. I would probably be looking for something special or unusual like Habu's paper yarn, I like to think I'm quite a discerning shopper, I won't just buy for the sake of it, unless it's something I can't do without.

What would I pack? Well since there are so many rules and regulations about carrying knitting needles I would have a good book for the flight, and something small and portable like socks, and I couldn't travel without my spindle and some fibre!

Do you think you can get away with any kind of knitting on board?

I'm glad that the US flight allow knitting on board. I just finished a sock on the flight to and from New Jersey. Thank you for the prize. The chocolates are yummy and so is the yarn! Is it a local yarn?

I would take along some dishcloth cotton and patterns and a pair of socks to knit...not sure we can knit on the planes from this end?

Ooh, I wonder if those teeny plastic Clover circulars would be allowed on planes as they're so tiny? I'd love to go back to NY for a yarn holiday and try to see Central Park this time as well! Good answer!
