What is she DOING?

You’d have thought I’d stripped down and run through the terminal naked…

Nope.  Just knitting in public.  Yesterday I exercised my TSA-given right to carry on my knitting needles into a secure region of the airport (5″ dpn AND 10″ single points, people!  Tell me MacGyver couldn’t do something with those!). 

 My first Hedera sock was coming along swimmingly.  I stashed it in my purse to bring to an oral ordination exam, and slid one of the needles right out when I pulled it out of my purse.  I managed to keep from wailing in the middle of the prospective pastor’s answer about the Athanasian formula of the Trinity and quietly stashed the sad sock back into my purse.  I have no idea how to save a lace knit piece when a needle is pulled out.  I’ll either figure it out quickly or I’ll have to resort to frogging.  Sniff.
