Hello & Welcome to my 48th episode of the
KWH iPad Show! Today’s feature isΒ kniterally flying high for HPP awareness πŸ™‚

Hey everyone… Well, it’s been more than a few weeks since my last reblog/post. I’ve been reading as many posts as possible from the growing blog community that surrounds me. Yet try as I might to write, just couldn’t break through the “blog fog” brain clog that’s been keeping all my blogful dots of inspiration from connecting into posts :-/ ‘Guess lovely outdoor crafting weather can have that effect, sometimes πŸ™‚ Have you experienced “blog fog”? How did you get back into your blogful groove?

Anyhoo… what have we been up to?

This past weekend, we packed our carry-on and flew to Winnipeg. Direct flight departure time was Friday morning at the crack of yawn πŸ˜‰ I’m so glad we could attend the 1st annual Soft Bones Canada HPP Awareness Conference at The ForksΒ in Winnipeg. It was a really well-organized event. Out-of-town attendees stayed at the Inn at the Forks. Friday night wasΒ an informal meet & greet for researchers, patients and organizers at the Museum of Human Rights. Saturday at the St. Boniface Hospital was a full day of HPP education seminars with experts from across Canada and the USA. Then following the seminar, the conference concluded on a full stomach with dinner at the Clay Oven πŸ™‚

We stayed an extra day in The ‘Peg…

This flight also marked the first time (since our Cancun knitting fiasco in 2012, when airport security nearly confiscated my knitting needles… yikes!!!) that I’ve dared to carry my knitting aboard any aircraft. The needles were a go, ‘though the mere 1.5 hour flight was barely enough time for aerial photos, drafting this post PLUS knitting… LoL … Oh well, it felt good just knowing my knitting was near πŸ˜‰ Knitting in the sky is the only way to fly, after all. And with USB ports at every seat, life above the clouds was pretty good!

Do you tend to over or under pack for travel?
My travel knitting WIPs always outweigh my destination.Β OnlyΒ broughtΒ 2 low-risk carry-on flight knit WIPs this time. But alas,Β it was still too much πŸ™‚

#1 β€” super-loopy-cool cast on…
See pics from my Christmas decorated staircase, including garland lengths of this cast on.

#2 β€”Β original heart dishcloth pattern…
My next original hand-knit heart design,
which is currently under construction.
Details will (eventually!) come… if/when
I ever get out of this app-sized iPad space :-/
