Yup Carla1019 I have to agree with you. I just spent 2 whole days in the hospital with someone who was having a TT done and all I thought was "I'm going to get soooo much knitting done...".
When a 6 hour flight does not bother you in the least because you will have all that time to knit and knit and knit.
You know you are a knitter when your budget is tight but you "need" to have some money for yarn in there somewhere. Especially for the Malabrigo.
