Please don't take knitting away from us on airlines. Been there done that and don't want to be there again. Knitting is relaxing and enjoyable for anyone that loves to knit.

Knitting needles on any form of transportation can not only become a weapon but look at the danger they could be in a wreck.

On a commercial flight from TX to PA, I was allowed to knit. The only restriction was that the scissors I brought on board be rounded at the tips (ie: children's scissors). No problem!
