So how do you spend 4 1/2 hours at Raleigh Durham International Airport? Why, you knit of course! Yes, that is a tiny gauge swatch for a pair of socks. Hopefully I will have cast on by the time we have boarded our flight for London (2 days later: it did not happen). There really isn't much to do here, especially when you have to waste so much time. However, I have to hand it to RDIA to have a woman's bathroom every 10 feet (2 days later: exaggeration - it was more like 20 feet) and a fairly crowd free airport. There isn't any chaos with people about to run you down, any pushing or shoving, etc., so although it has been what feels like the longest afternoon of my life, it has been relatively peaceful and event-free. That's good, no?
