TSA Travel Tips Tuesday – Knitting Needles and Needlepoint

Knitting needles and yarn.
Along with books and electronic gadgets, knitting is a very popular soother and a great way to pass the time. With the holiday travel season right around the corner, I’m sure some of you are wondering if you can travel with knitting needles.

Well, let me get to the point here. I’m not spinning a yarn when I tell you that knitting needles and needlepoint items including scissors under four-inches are permitted in your carry-on bags. However, circular thread cutters, or any cutter with a blade must be packed in your checked baggage.

If you are traveling for the holidays this year, be sure to check out our Holiday Travel Tips.

See you next Wednesday with more travel tips!
