Knitting on a Plane
Created By: Anita Morton

Knitting on a Plane

After a terribly frustrating morning involving cancelled flights, an

overbooked flight causing unavailable seat and lost luggage, my daughter

and I were enroute to San Antonio via Memphis. To our dismay, we were

given the back row seats on a small plane. It also was the noisiest plane

trip I had ever experienced. We were all poised to be crabby and tense.

I took out my short #7 needles with cotton yarn and proceeded to finish a

washcloth (a nice small project for a plane trip). The seven year old girl in

the seat nest to me was transfixed! She watched every stitch I made and

asked wonderful, intelligent questions.

Her mother also had a two year old with her; she crochets. However she

assured the girl that she would see to it that she could be taught how to


I finished the cloth and gave it to my new friend. For the rest of the flight

she folded it into many shapes and designs; I am sure it will be put to

good use for months to come!

By the time we got to Memphis, I’d finished another cloth for the little

sister. The time had flown by, children were entertained and I forgot to be

crabby!!! Another day saved by knitting!
