I’m sure this has been visited before, but does anyone know if knitting can be taken on planes? DH and I are planning a trip to Cabo, and I want to knit whilst we fly. Anyone else have any experience with this?
I’m assuming I’ll only be able to have wooden or bamboo DP’s or circ’s, right? No KP Options probably?
Generally, yes you can, but there are exceptions, especially when it comes to International flights. It basically gets down to whether the security at the airport your departing from will let you get away with it. But the TSA says they’re allowed.
I just flew domestic and was able to take my Options with me. No questions asked.
But I would suggest taking needles you don’t care about losing or postage-paid envelopes in case they decide it’s a no-go.
My experience is that in general security is tighter for flights within the US than internationally. Last time I flew in the US you couldn’t even take a bottle of water on a flight![/quote]
Yeah, that’s true, but apparently only for liquids. I’ve heard some people say that they couldn’t bring their knitting when flying to the US from another country.
There’s a woman I work with who is absolutely amazed that I can bring my knitting needles on board a plane. I told her, trust me, you’d rather fly with me WITH my needles than WITHOUT. Especially if it’s a long flight. Yikes, just the thought of the withdrawl makes me cringe a little :teehee:
I’ve taken bamboo circs and DPNs on several US flights. I take one of those round yarn cutters instead of scissors. No problems! (Now watch, I’ll have problems on the flight I’m taking tomorrow. :doh: )
