Transporting Knitting Needles & Needlepoint
Traveling with Special Items
Knitting needles are permitted in your carry-on baggage or checked baggage.
Items needed to pursue a Needlepoint project are permitted in your carry-on baggage or checked baggage with the exception of circular thread cutters or any cutter with a blade contained inside which cannot go through the checkpoint and must go in your checked baggage.
Not that I travel a whole lot...but I always put my work on scrap yarn and the needles in the same bag through the scanners and if they confiscate them, I don't have to be in a mad rush to pull my knitting off of my needles. And I always take my cheap needles in my carry on and my "good" needles in my luggage. I've also heard that some carry a self address envelope, large enough to put their needles in, if taken by the TSA so they can mail them back to themselves instead of losing their needles to TSA.
