It is time to rejoice, the festive season is here, celebrations are near and we are once again permitted to take knitting needles on-board. Hip hip hooray!
Gone were the days of looking out the 747-window, blanket on knee, knitting peacefully as we headed to a far away land. But the authorities have decided that our pointy-ended weapons of woolly creativity are not so threatening after all. Along with the other necessary in-flight items such as tweezers, and nail files, knitting needles no longer have to rough it in the cargo hold of the plane. Your needles will once again be allowed to accompany you inside the aircraft.
The time has returned to knit and fly my friends.
