There is also a bit of discussion about how one keeps one’s Golden Skeins safe when moving hemispheres and a précis of my top 3, from Nurturing Fibres and Flamboyance Yarns, which may be superseded by a newer offering from the Knitting Goddess. We end with a rallying cry not to do weird stuff just to get your knitting onto a plane. You know it makes sense, people.
