    I wanted to be a veterinarian. Actually became a shorthand typist which gave me more opportunity for international travel.

    Be prepared to answer questions about your project…if you’re an introvert you may not like the attention you will draw.

    We just got home from our first kid oriented vacation that I was brave enough to bring my knitting! The trip didnt prove to be as knit worthy as I had hoped but it was still nice to have for little spurts of quiet.

    If you take interchangeable needles, you can give up your needle tips if TSA asks for them and still save your project. Wood needles are the best bet to carry.

    My motto for travelling is, “If I can’t bring my yarn, I’m not going.” XD

    I have never had problems taking my needles and scissors on a plane. That being said, you might pack the good, sharp scissors away and keep a pair of kid-friendly scissors in your carry-on. They’re less likely to have a fit, that way.

    A plastic toothbrush holder (case) is great for keeping crochet hooks and yarn needles safely together. You can put a bit of tape over the holes at Enderland to keep smaller hooks& needles from sliding out.

    I have also learned through experience, airlines and security have less issues with bamboo needles than metal or other wise. I also bring extra needles and I never pack my best needles when I travel. Also, I agree with some of the other comments, you may need to keep your sharp and best scissors at home and use a yarn cutter that you can hang around your neck or bring some kids’ short scissors. Have good travels!

    I wanted to be a Disney background artist because of all the gorgeous detail – that was way back when all was done by hand!

    Chandi, Thank you for the handy tips. I especially like the tip about checking with the airline TSA about carrying on knitting needles.I am leaving for a three week vacation and plan on taking a knitting project or two with me.

    I always wanted to help people when I was growing up. So I decided when I was very young that if I were a nurse I could help a lot of people. As I got older,16, to be exact, all I wanted was to be a wife and mother. So at the very young age of 16 I married the love of my life and over the next seven years we were blessed with three beautiful children. Two sons and one daughter. I still felt like I wanted to do more for others. So I enrolled in college and 2 1/2 years later graduated with honors as a Registered Nurse! It was definitely a challenge, raising children, mine and several others and keeping everything together! But it has been worth it all! Over the past 30 years I have so blessed to have been able to work many areas of nursing. My greatest passion being hospice. I am so honored and privileged to have taken care of such wonderful patients and their families. I’m so thankful to them for allowing me to be a part of their lives. Each and every one of them hold a very special place in my heart and always will. Due to health complications I was forced to retire almost 3 years ago. I was devastated! What to do with myself now? I have always been into any kind of crafts I saw. Recently I learned to crochet by watching YouTube videos. This has been my saving grace! I can’t seem to find enough hours in the day to crochet everything I want to crochet! With my finances cut by about 75 percent from when I was working it’s not easy to buy the yarn I need to complete projects. But I just get what I can when I can and work on them as I go. Winning this would be such an answer to my prayers. I can’t tell you what this would mean to me. Thank you for the opportunity to enter and chance to win. Your yarn is beautiful and I would truly be honored to win it! I love to crochet facial scrubbies when traveling! Everyone loves them too!

    In all honesty I wanted to be a nun. Being that I went to Catholic School. Maybe a doctor. In reality I am a Child of God first. Wife, mother, grandmother, Caregiver and I LOVE knitting. I love the patterns on this website. Thank you for always sharing.
