I was able to get my bamboo dpns through the security checks and x-ray detection at the airport.
The flight was quite turbulent. Drinks were swishing around, almost spilling and I had to stop knitting for fear I was going to poke myself in the eye. My actions proved to the Spouse that I am not an obsessive knitter since I was not willing to risk an injury to myself and those around me.
**note: I forgot my USB cable to upload my photos. to be uploaded at a later date**
***P.S. I also extended the "early bird" registration for the Dublin Knit Collective: Autumn Show 'n Tell Event by a couple of days due to my limited internet access while I am away.
