Bethany Steiners from Jimmy Beans Wool has some great tips for traveling with crochet materials this holiday season:

Traveling season is upon us and I’ve just spent some time reviewing the TSA regulations before I hop on the plane! We crocheters are a creative bunch, so I’ve compiled a list of my favorite tips for working around those regulations so that I can finish all my holiday projects on time!

  1. Need a handy container for your crochet hooks? I like to use a traveling toothbrush holder! I find the ones with the smallest drainage hole, and you can find them for little money at most places (Just double check for length!). You can toss the container in your bag when not in use!
  2. Scissors are no longer allowed, even my tiny ones, so I just take dental floss for cutting yarn.
  3. To fasten off your project, use a yarn needle instead of a hook to weave the ends back through. This secures them better and reduces the chances of raveling during those turbulent flights!

We hope you have safe and happy travels this holiday season.


How do you travel during the holidays and which of these projects would you consider making?

I love the quick easy patterns. I always crochet as we travel either by car or plane. I put my pattern,Crochet hook(& I usually try to put an extra one of the size I need in case I loose one.) in a zip lock bag. Will have to add dental floss to cut yarn--great idea! Patti

Well I haven't been able to travel for a while do to recovering from surgery three months ago....have 4 more to go..... So I've adapted crocheting into my life and am loving it. Ive made a few basic stitch blankets, a baby sweater, headbands, several hats of all sizes, toddler sweater for my granddaughter, mittens, snowman mittens, a baby cocoon, flowers, Pom poms......I'm looking to add more things! I only knew basic stitches when I started and now so much. My husband thanks this site and others for helping with my creativity and as he says...."saving our marriage" This because I cannot walk or drive right now. Thanks for all the inspiration!
