Q. If I were going to take down an entire jet plane with something in my knitting bag, what would be the best thing to use?
- Single metal dpn (fuchsia, US size 2) from Boye. (Have never, that I can recall, purchased set of fuchsia needles in any size.)
- 4-foot tape measure shaped like laughing sheep. (Squee, etc.)
- Scrap of paper with mysterious note in pencil to "yo2, k2tog, k6 at next m, dammit."
- Small plastic box containing eight two-inch-long T-pins for lace blocking demonstration.
Q. Which of these is incompatible with lace knitting?
- Eating a BBQ Breakfast Taco from Salt Lick.
- Waiting for next available urinal in crowded airport men's room.
- Looking badass while seated at airport sports bar.
- Avoiding the attention of woman at Gate 17 who wants to talk to somebody about the emotional and gastrointestinal consequences of her Pomeranian's separation anxiety.
- All of the above.
- Grip both armrests very firmly in order to hold the plane up in the air.
- Promise the Almighty Whatever Is Out There that if flight lands successfully, you will stop screening phone calls from Auntie Helen.
- Cast on Sharon Miller's Princess Shawl since it's something you've always said you'd like to knit before you die.
