If you go to the TSA website, and then do a search for knitting needles, it will be able to tell you...also you could do a search here, as this topic has been discussed.

But basically...they prefer wood to metal, straight to circs (I think, or is it the other way around???) Hmm...I took my circ bamboo's on with no problem.

BUT...a lot of it depends on the agent. Has anybody had anything confiscated??? or not really confiscated, but not allowed?

A friend of mine recently flew to New Orleans, I don't know which airline, and the took away her manicure scissors but let her keep her needles. They were metal straights. I figure that they'd rather deal with knitting needles on the plane than a bunch of knitters who can't have them.

I know it's been discussed here and on other forums. I'd check with the airline.

Skeery!!

About the needles: I checked the TSA website a couple of days ago, and knitting needles and crochet hooks are allowed, as are rounded-point scissors.

I think it's funny they allow circular needles...I guess the garotte isn't a concern

Like a knitter who just lost count on a 12 row lace pattern and dropped 3 stitches after someone stepped on their project, which had already been stained by their seatmate's wine would do anything dangerous. Oh, Please.
