I always look forward to extended knitting time on a plane. On the flight to California, I started this hat and realized I didn't bring the bigger size needle I needed to finish. FAIL. I read my Kindle instead.
As a middle seat holder on my flight home, upon pulling out my knitting, I flung one of my bamboo needles against the wall of the airplane where it landed between the foot of my sleeping window seat companion and the wall. I watched her kick it and move it with her foot the entire flight. This is another good reason to abandon the bamboo and only use circulars. I did this because the size I needed was occupied with another project at home. Anyway, as we landed, she woke up and I asked her for the needle. FAIL.
