Step One: Pack up knitting bag. Mine is a free bag I got from Clinique. I like that it zips. Usually it holds all my knitting, but I am using particularly long needles for this project.
Step Two: Pack scissors and tapestry needle separately if you plan to carry on your bag. I put mine in my liquids baggie.
Step Three: Zip the bag up (as best you can) and pack it in your carry-on.
I am being very ambitious and taking my Union Jack tea cosy, which has a lot of intarsia. I really want to finish the project, and once I complete this second flag piece, I just need to make two plain red layers. See my Union Jack tea cosy progress here and here.
Wish me luck! I'll be back June 19th.
