Only if you get there early enough to leave the security line and go back out to the "public" area where there may or may not be a post office/mail box. I know there is a place to mail things in the Atlanta airport, but it's a good bit before security. Once you've waited for a while in the security line, you may not want to wait again! I don't fly that much, but I've never heard of a mailbox right in the security line!

I've never seen any of these, the plugs. Where do you get them?

I'm not sure what she means by "plugs", but I use the caps that come with my Options. I can't find a photo of just the caps, but they are in this picture. You take the needles off and just screw them on.

When asking questions ALWAYS post the name and a link for the pattern if you have it.

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.]
