Travel Knitting


Knitting by the Seine, Maisons Laffitte
I recently started knitting – partly inspired by all of the amazing projects that have been appearing online of late & partly due to the fact that I’ve been travelling quite a bit lately (mainly for work) so needed a more portable craft. I’m glad I did as I’ve been able to fit in quite a bit of travel knitting whilst working on an Owls jumper as part of Kat and Sabs‘ knit-along.

In the last couple of weeks I have been knitting on the plane…

  1. I’m afraid I don’t know how to knit but it seems like a very handy thing to do during all those long plane and train rides. And I love the thought of knitting by the Seine!

  2. I did not know you could take knitting on the plane! My travel time is about to get a whole lot more productive 🙂

  3. That’s looking really good! I was too scared to take my knitting on the plane last summer just in case they confiscated my good needles in Kenya but I think I might try it next time I go abroad. You look like you had a lovely time in Paris.

  4. I checked online and it said that knitting needles were allowed on planes but I was still a bit wary at the bag check!

  5. Ooh that must have been a scary check in re the needles! Even when they say you’re allowed them I always get nervous but read advice from seasoned knitting travellers to take a SAE with you to check in so at least if they confiscate your needles and work you can mail it back to yourself.

    Happy knitting! 🙂


  6. The portability of knitting is one reason I am able to do so much of it. I always have a sweater or a sock in my hands during my commute. And, I’ve not flown without a knitting project since I started knitting. Though, I usually taken wooden DPNs out of precaution when I fly overseas. 😀

  7. Wow that was unusual. I just wrote an incredibly long comment but after I clicked submit my comment didn’t show
    up. Grrrr… well I’m not writing all that over again. Anyways, just wanted to say wonderful blog!
