There is no cure like travel! - The Knitmore Girls - Episode 3

Pink Luggage
(Yes, this really is my luggage.)

Listen here:


This week, Gigi has startitis and works on her (slightly troubled) t-shirt sweater. Jasmin is working on her hot pink Ice Queen, and buys some roving (for science!) at Color: A Fiber Festival.

(Vendors we talk about include Tactile Fiber Arts / A Verb for Keeping Warm, Pigeonroof Studios, and Girl on the Rocks.)

Travel Knitting

Travel season = travel knitting. When flying, please remember- many of the decisions are left to the discretion of the individual TSA agents. The link to the TSA website for the "forbidden stuff" list can be found here.

Alternatives to in-flight knitting include: reading about knitting, listening to knitting podcasts, or, you know, reading a regular book. (Oh yeah, and Stephanie Pearl-McPhee -aka, the Yarn Harlot- will be at the Maker Faire on Saturday, May 3rd.)

Mother Knows Best

Jasmin talks about knitting bag/ purse selections. Gigi points out the awesomeness of Knitting Daily.


  1. Hi, ladies

    I love your new podcast. I just heard about it, and have already listened to all three episodes. I am a passionate knitter, and my 19 year old daughter is an occasional knitter. You two sound as if you have as much fun together as we do. Keep up the great work. I'm off to find you both on Ravelry.

  2. I love your podcast! As you can see, I am trying to catch up from the beginning. Regarding traveling and knitting, I usually use the Magic Loop (very long circular needles), but had the needle threatened at security once. Happily, I could pass the needle back to NicaKnit. As I was working on mittens with fairly good sized needles, I was able to continue by using pencils. So, if one lays in a supply of various sized pencil-pairs, you can be home free! They don't really substitute well for the circularity but for gauge, they're fine.
