Do You Carry Your Crochet or Knitting When Traveling? Some things you should know before traveling this holiday or any time of year:
I don’t know about you but I carry my crochet with me everywhere I go. I tend to get a lot more accomplished when traveling. Do you? When I travel regardless of by car or by plane I have a project in a small bag that can stay with me and the rest of the yarn I decide to take is packed in my luggage and I pack an extra travel bag for things I might purchase while gone. This allows me to crochet while getting to my destination and still have something else to work on once that project is finished. I find it easier to carry small projects verses large projects.
When traveling by car there are no worries about what crochet hooks, knitting needles, scissors, etc. that you carry with you, however, that is not the case when flying.
I recently ran across some great information by Lion Brand regarding Airline Travel Rules For Knitters and Crocheters that I thought would be very helpful as you prepare to travel this holiday season and throughout the year.

Knowing what I know now I will be carrying a self-addressed/pre-posted padded envelop with me when traveling. This way if I am told I cannot carry some of my crochet tools at least I can send them back home instead of having to throw them away.
