Good news for traveling knitters

The TSA is planning to relax its policies regarding sharp objects tomorrow. I know that I haven't had any difficulty traveling with metal circulars, but hopefully this action will put to rest any lingering fears that your needles will get taken from you at the security checkpoint.

I'm not sure what it is, but I've travelled several times with my Addi Turbo circulars and never had a problem. I wonder if it's the airport that you're flying out of. I fly out of Houston with the knitting in my carry on. They just scan it, I don't offer to say anything and it has always gone through..... so my 2 cents.

I've never been brave enough to take my knitting . . . however, I've heard that if you do you should carry a large self addressed stamped envelope just in case. . . .but how would you know how much postage to put on it??
