Well, I've knit in 4 airports and on three airplanes today. I've cranked out a set of mittens (no surprise), and landed safely in my destination of Missoula, MT. Unfortunately, my checked baggage didn't make the trip.
My priorities when packing the carry on were - knitting, Kindle, laptop, gifts for friend, and granola bar. Perhaps I should have put more of a priority on undies, toothbrush, and pj's.
All in all, sitting in the restaurant/bar in the airport restaurant, which strangely doesn't serve food, (my friend is late), knitting over a laptop and a cold pint of Moose Drool beer, things could definitely be worse. The Cascade Mountains look spectacular out the window, even if the luggage isn't here, I am, and none of the knitting stuff is lost. It doesn't suck.
Sadly, I've managed to lose track of my camera, so I can't take pics. I've lifted this one from the web.
