Here is how the TSA stands on Transporting Knitting Needles, Knitting Supplies, and Notions:
- "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."
- We recommend going directly to the source, TSA: Transporting Knitting Needles and Needlepoint. Print that page and carry it with your airline ticket or boarding pass
