I wouldn't risk it if you are travelling to the UK. I travelled through there in April and they are very tough on security regulations. Just in case no one has told you, they will only allow ONE
carry one bag. ONE
. Not a bag and a purse. Just ONE
bag. If you are carrying a bag and a purse they will make you put your purse in your carry on bag or they will have you check one bag. It's a pain in the behind but that's what they want and you can't talk your way past that.
AmandaC says they don't allow knitting needles and after my experience trying to get through with more than one carry-on (most other places allow you two carry on bags) I would take her word for it.
