The Yarn Harlot's story about packing extra yarn for her daughter made me laugh yesterday when I finally got to read it. When I travel, my first and most panicky thoughts are "What will I read?" (you don't want to run out of book half way through a trip) and "What knitting shall I pack?".
In fact, yesterday morning it took me twice as long to decide what knitting to take - do I start a new sock? Or just take the Must Have Cardigan? - than it did to work out which clothes I'd be wearing for my two day business trip. In the end, I packed the Must Have Cardigan. Don't know why I was so worried - it's not as if anyone will allow me to actually knit at the airport or on the plane! Could someone PLEASE tell the European airlines/airports that the EU changed the rules TWO YEARS AGO and declared knitting a safe activity!
The book was easier. I decided that on Tuesday. I'm currently reading the story of the Grameen Bank after hearing it's founder, Mohammed Yunnis, interviewed on the radio. It is an eye opener! I'll write a review of it after I finish.
