I just got back from Cartagena, Colombia.  While I could take my knitting with me from my departure city of San Jose, Costa Rica on the return trip leaving from Colombia knitting needles were not allowed.

So, I'm flying r/t Charlotte NC - Buenos Aires next month. I doubt I'll have problems leaving the US, but can't get a clear answer about departing Argentina. Maybe I'll just crochet instead.

I flew to and from Las Vegas on America West and had no problems. I had bamboo circulars.

I hope I'll be okay when I fly to Seattle this weekend!

Not sure about planes but I recently had jury duty and the security at the courthouse made it clear that if they had been metal my needles would have been confiscated.  Also they took all my live stitches off the needles (  Shocked  ) and made me stuff them in my pockets.  Then before giving them back they asked if I planned on "stabbing" anyone.  The thought hadn't occured to me untill they ripped my knitting off the needles, lol.  So that's just a courthouse though....but still I'd stick to bamboo.

So silly. I had to return my knitting to the car last summer when I was going into a taping of a game show!! Oddly, the swiss army knife in my purse cleared thruogh the dopey security peeps.

I recently flew from Manchester Airport (UK) to Calgary with Zoom airlines -  no problems with my knitting needles (I was using Denise ones) with airport security, and no probs on the plane either - although I did get a few funny looks from some of the other passengers - but that may well have been cos I was trying to knit with 4 kids leaping all over me!  I gave up after a short while ....  just too hard to concentrate what with the children and everything!

I flew to Frankfurt and then to Athens and the airport security there was more concerned about my hair barrette than my knitting needles.  Roll Eyes

I just picked up one of those circular pendants that you can wear around your neck, but it cuts yarn and thread.  Also, I've used a dental floss box to cut my yarn instead of packing scissors.

Hmm. This late-August I'm flying from Orange County to Gatwick, England. Has anyone had experience at that airport? Will I probably have more trouble going through customs from the US to the UK or the other way around? It really would be the PERFECT thing to do during all that time...
