suzy hausfrau podcast | episode #17 | are we there yet?

It's that time of the year again, where we all buckle up and head off for a short break over Easter. If you are anything like me you will want to get the most out of all that time sitting down in the car or plane by bringing along a project, or two...or three.

In today's episode of the podcast, my friend Jane gives her best tips for knitting on the road, including the all important question - how many projects should I bring?

  1. Hi Renae, like you I have lost scissors at airport security and almost cried as they were very precious. When planning a trip to the US, I researched what i could and couldn't take on board the plan to ensure that firstly I didn't lose anything and second, wasn't taken into custody as a potential terrorist due to my crochet hooks!
    I found that hooks and needles are allowed but no 'cutting' devices like scissors or blades (pocket knives, no matter how small still don't make it through - sniff!)
    What I did find was a round thread cutter made for sewing thread, works just as well and is accepted through security (it has to be the round version as the the other kinds are viewed as blades and it will be confiscated) It isn't the cleanest of cuts like a scissor cut but it is better than using your teeth or try to saw away with the plastic knives they give you for your meals on board. My one doesn't have a brand on it but I bought it at Spotty's (it's plastic with 7 small nicks around the circumference of the circle that expose the 'blade' with a loop at the top to hang or hook). A quick Google found several different brands, Clover among them. My plastic one was inexpensive, around $5 and works a treat!

  2. I have always wanted one of these! Thanks for writing about it! Thanks for the article! It was a lot of good info.


Thank you for taking the time to read my blog...I especially love it when I get comments. Have a great day, suzy xoxo
