Shouldn't be a problem, but check these threads already posted about this. The search feature is a wonderful thing.


Knitting on the plane

NTSA info

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

I didn't have any problem with them on my flight last week. I had two sets of bamboo DPNs and 8 sets of metal circs in my carry-on.

I am really suprized that circs arent considered a problem. Not to be morbid but they would make a really good garote.
Hm...also might be a good weapon in a mystery novel.
The villan could be a man who knits...hehehe :devil:

Anyone know of any airlines that will not allow knitting needles on the plane? We're flying to Disney in September and I want to take something along to work on at the airport and on board the plane. Maybe even in line at the park too
