I flew from Chicago to Heathrow 3 weeks ago with metal knitting needles, 3" pointed scissors, a bunch of straight pins, safety pins, and embroidery needles for my smocking project, with no problems whatsoever. From Heathrow I then flew to Stuttgart, Germany (where I am currently visiting), again with the same hand baggage; again, no problems. I read and copied (and carried with me) the information on Heathrow's web site just to be on the safe side. I will do the same thing when I return to the U.S. next month. [The Heathrow site specifically states that materials for knitting and needlework projects are permissible.]
