  1. I’m really appreciating your Portuguese knitting segments! I love the purling, but am having a great deal of trouble with the knitting. Any suggestions besides practice, practice, practice?

  2. Joe – practicing is the key! You might find that you prefer knitting in your normal way, then switching to Portuguese for purling. That’s what many people are doing.

  3. FYI – I have a friend that will soon be traveling overseas and she was told to check the rules and regs for the specific country as they may/probably will differ from the US.

  4. Is there a list of your favorite podcasts? I know you mentioned several on your latest audio. I’m enjoying your podcasts, the format, everything. Thank you!

    • Thank you so much, Staci. Great list. The one I had in mind was Sleep with Me, which I found on my podcast player app. Thanks again for all you do. You’ve been my favorite knitter for a long time.

  5. I haven’t had trouble traveling with needles except one time a couple years ago. We were returning from Mexico and I had to hand over these nice, expensive wood dpns in a sock I was working on. It seemed to me more of decision in the moment rather than a policy. No problem on a recent trip to Colombia – both flying within the country and returning. I would recommend using cheap needles in foreign travels and hope for the best.

  6. I’ve travelled in different countries and had items that are acceptable in USA are not acceptable in Europe. Then what is aceeptable in England and the EU is not acceptable in Asia.

    I’ve gone through scissors to the smallest size and had them taken away. I now travel with a round cutter.

    I never risk traveling with straight needles, I always use circulars.
