Knitting At the Airport

Despite the past knitting needle banning, knitting seems to be alive and well as a great way to pass the time at the airport. Although there are some who still fear the over-exaggerated scenario of Aunt Helen impaling the entire flight crew and passengers with her double-pointed needles, research has now shown that this would never happen on account of the fact that every knitter knows how hard it is to get blood stains out of wool.

Even though knitting needles are no longer on the FDA list of  items that must stay in your checked baggage, I strongly recommend you check with both your leaving and arriving airports – especially for overseas flights- before trying to go through security with your needles. Besides, I wouldn’t want any of you to end up on the ‘No Fly’ list for trying to smuggle in your purse some 16 inch circulars, aka, potential weapons of mass destruction!
