To that I say.....

Maybe those knitting needles would save her life IF a terrorist did take over the plane. A good poke to the eye would be what he/she needed.

I agree about how dumb it is not to be able to take liquids in your carry-on, and I am a bit dumb-founded about why you CAN take knitting needles, but not a nail file. Who made these rules? You can do more damage with a ball-point pen than a nail file.

Wow, this writer must have an “unbearable” time wherever he/she goes if someone simply knitting bothered them that much.


I wonder what kind of needles this person was using that they “hissed’? None of my needles have ever hissed at me, was this woman knitting with snakes or something?

I'm also slightly offended that the writer assumed that the 20 something listening to her iPod didn't knit. How rude!

I guess some people just aren't happy unless they are complaining about something. Unbearable to me is someone vomiting during the flight, certainly not knitting.

I am offended by this woman's article. And the poor knitting woman. What did she ever do to her. I'm also offended that she assumed the 20 something didn't knit. I am 25 and have been knitting for 7 or 8 years now. How rude.

I was offended that she called her foul smelling and fat. What a jerk. She acts like knitting is a crime or something. Some people just don't get it.

I was just teasing. You always post links that start with your blog.
