I thought the suggestion of using a dental floss case was particularly clever!

I've flown with a pair of tiny foldable scissors.  A year ago no one had a problem with them, but they were taken away on the last flight even though they didn't have sharp edges.  I was then told all scissors were illegal but the same guy said later that blunt scissors are okay.  Blunt scissors may be flown with but I think it depends on the security guard.  They make take them away anyway.  Clippers without a nailguard work, but i've heard of them being taken away too.  Anyway, the rules are flexible, and be sure whatever you take you don't mind being taken away from you or mailed to your house.

Hey everyone.
Thanks for all of the suggestions.
I have bought the round pendant one at Jo Ann, I will take a nail clippers with me too, and cut some thread in advance just in case both of the above cause a problem.

FYI... I've always taken knitting with me on the plane. I use wooden circular needles, and have never had a problem. I have, however had nail clippers (and tweezers) taken from me by security though. Don't know if that helps any. Smiley

really? that's so strange to me. I've never had either taken from me. I did once have a guy in the seat next to me mutter sort of sinisterly about how 'those weren't suppposed to be allowed...'

Woo - love when people are afraid of craft things - we're obviously going to satin stitch his hands together.  Fear the crafters!

Gah - I can see the need for security but sometimes things go far too far toward being a nanny state...

Much to everyone at the Vegas airport's surprise, my family's included, I walked through security wearing a spiked belt with a Bad Religion belt buckle (you know, a cross with the international sign for "no"-the red circle w/ the slash, & I have full sleeves) & the stupid security thing didn't even beep, but my 6 months preggers cousin, who is a total cute innocent mom-type, got picked out of line for the in depth search.

Anyways, my aunt just got back from flying, & she had her dental floss confiscated, because "you can use it to tie up pilots & choke people to death". So maybe EMPTY dental floss thingies can be taken to use to cut floss?

Regardless, the thread cutters from Clover are allowed, according to the TSA. Of course, if security tells you they're not, there's really no way to win an argument with them...
