I was just leaving a comment on the Yarn Harlot's blog when I typed up the following paragraph:
You can never have too much yarn with you! I was daydreaming the other day about what it would be like if I was in the Big Brother house and realized that I'd be sneaky and hit the thrift stores before leaving and find some mens' 3X knit sweaters to put in my luggage, so once I was in the house I could unravel them and have something to knit. I'm still working on what to use as needles since you're not allowed writing implements. I could probably sneak in some dpsn as hair sticks though, or as shawl pins. I think I've been thinking about this too much! :)
It's sad but true. I really was thinking about that the other day. I mean, they go through your bags and veto what you can and can't bring. Plus you only get one small duffel. So bringing in obvious yarn would be out of the question. But they can't stop you from unraveling your own shirt, can they? I mean, as a last resort I could even finger knit it...
(Let's ignore the fact that I would never be appearing on Big Brother because it is a US show, as if that was the only reason).
