Hooks on a plane
Are metal hooks ok on planes? I don't think they could be used as weapons. Plastic hooks just don't work. I've tried lookin' it up on the net but can't find a clear answer.

Thanks everyone!

Yes, crochet hooks and knitting needles are fine. I looked it up before I went on my flight and had absolutely no problem at the airport with my 12" long metal knitting needles.

Here's the link that says they're safe: You can type Ctrl+F and then type in "crochet" or you can just look on Page 2, Section II, Article B.

Thank you for the information. I only have one question as I am going to England next year. The link is to an article dated 2005, is it possible the rules have changed? My friends in the UK said it was a no no for bringing them. I will have to call the airlines but if it is still in effect I will let the group know.
I will never stop learning or sharing my knowledge!
