Knitting Tip of the Day: Dental Floss Container Cutter

A container of dental floss to use as a yarn cutter is not only airplane-friendly, the floss itself is useful for "tails" on a stitch marker so that it follows the pattern as you knit, to use for a provisional cast-on in place of a contrasting yarn, and as a "lifeline" threaded through a row of stitches so that if make a mistake you have a "good" row to go back to.

This is a good tip. I keep dental floss in my knitting bag. I've never had a problem in an airport.
