I started making my own knitting needles a few years ago. I had recently bought an adorable set of knitting needles with faces on them, but they were acrylic, which I tend not to enjoy for knitting. I decided to…
I found a cute tutorial for creating your own knitting needles and I really want to try it! How would you decorate yours?

Yesterday I walked into Woolworths and they had a Christmas table laid out with a neatly stacked pyramid of Christmas puddings. It is September. I feel like it’s a little premature for anyone to be getting excited about Christmas and the hard boiled cakes that will eventually outlive us all. Nevertheless, as knitters and crocheters we have an excuse. Presents pile up and life flies by and personally, I don’t want to spend the week leading up to the big day with my hands in permanent gridlock (again). So over the next few months I’m going to share the patterns and ideas I’ve been eyeing off, trying to avoid those that seem too costly or time consuming.
Today I’ve got a few crochet and knitting patterns for around the home.

I will be travelling on Jetstar to New Zealand today and I am very confused about baggage restrictions.
Knitting needles were removed from the list of prohibited items departing Australia in 2009. On a Facebook post, a woman asked Jetstar directly if she could knit on their flights without having her needles confiscated and they replied saying that if they made it through security, which was likely, it would be okay. On the other hand, the Jetstar website explicitly states that knitting needles are not allowed in cabin baggage.
Urgh! I know this is a long shot, but does anyone have any experience flying internationally from Australia with Jetstar (or another airliner) with on board knitting needles?
EDIT: I packed 4mm circular needles and they were cleared through national and international security. There was no mention of my use of them on the plane itself.
