I always bring some knitting when I travel. Normally it is a small project like a neck warmer or some socks. If I´m on a long distance flight it is handy to have something to do when I have read the airline magazine, eaten and flicked trough the entertainment. It feels like home to watch a movie and do some knitting!
Sometimes when a flight is delayed it takes the irritation out of the situation to knit a bit. Even if you arrive at your destination too late you can at least have a new sock or two!
I find most airport knitter friendly. You can sit and knit everywhere. But some airports are more knitter friendly than other. My number one is Keflavik Airport in Iceland. You might ask what makes this airport better than other airports? Keep on reading!
There is lovely hand knit sweaters to admire in the shops. They are hand knit in Icelandic wool.
It is a small airport so you don´t get feel stressed out or bumped into when you walk around in your own world looking at the sweaters.
I love the Icelandic round yoke and Keflavik Airport is a place for inspiration!
There are many lovely things to look at and the shops stock hand made goods from Iceland along with what you expect to find at airports.
I love the wooly sheep and the hand knit bow tie!
As if this wasn’t enough they sell yarn! They sell knitting needles and they sell beautiful shawl kits!
I would love to hear from you about your favourite knitting friendly airport!
