breaking yarn in flight
 
Hey Knitters! I'm about to take an international flight and OF COURSE I will be bringing my knitting along. I've never had a problem before bringing my needles on the plane, but I've never brought scissors, always working on a big enough project that it didn't matter. Now I'm making baby socks, I'll want to make several on the plane. How will I break the yarn to start a new project with no scissors?!?! There must be some trick...teeth? toenail? :P

do they allow nail clippers? i have used those before. i heard a rumor a while back they were going to let small scissors on flights and then took it back so i don't know where that stands at this point. they also make those necklace like things that have a small razor blade in them to use for cutting yarn.

How about some blunt nose scissors? I have a little small pair. I think I'd try to get those on but then have a fallback idea too.

Or those little ones that fold up. I don't know where you'd get them though...

Edit: Here's some.

all very great ideas, thanks a lot! I think I'll just try several things and hope for the best :p

Kilgore, you don't want scissors at all, what you need is a yarn cutting pendant. You can order one here.

Oops, I didn't read brendajos's post before I made mine. The yarn cutting pendant I mentioned is the same thing as brendajos suggested. Sorry for the redundancy. I guess I shouldn't open my big mouth until I've read everything.

I brought a childs blunt nose scissors on the plane with me and had no problems at all. I got them at Target.
