or knitting while flying.  What's the climate like for taking knitting needles on a plane these days?  On an international flight?  I assume metal needles might be a no-no, although I flew to Florida with some metal circulars no problem.  Bamboo needles?

I do believe it is ok to bring knitting needles on a plane, however they can be taken away if any of the TSA workers believe they could be a threat or something. http://www.tsa.gov/travelers/airtravel/assistant/editorial_1252.shtm <--link for knitting needles

http://www.tsa.gov/travelers/airtravel/prohibited/permitted-prohibited-items.shtm <--link that says an item could still be prohibited even if it isn't on the list.

Basically cover yourself by bringing a SASE that you can stick your needles in to mail home incase a TSA rep doesn't let you bring them on a plane.

I took my knitting on an international flight about a year and a half ago and had no problems. You really never know though. I made sure to bring stitch holders with me just in case my needles were taken away. I didn't want everything else to unravel Smiley.

Safe travels!
