please remind me...Boye's on flights?
I just booked my round trip ticket to Detroit for a trip in early November. I'm going on a whirlwind trip to visit family in MI, OH, and WI. I have layovers in Chicago both ways.

I see that the TSA website says knitting and crochet needles are approved for carry on and checked baggage. Just plastic ones? Or are metal ok too? It's not a big deal if I can't take my Boye's on the plane...at least I can knit during the layovers.
