Crochet Hooks on planes

So I'm just getting my stuff together for my up coming trip. I will be flying Southwest on Sunday morning. Does anyone know if you can bring a crochet hook on the flight. I'm packing my counted cross stitch due to the needles and scissors. I will only have my yarn and hook. TIA for any help

The TSA website is the authoritative source. http://www.tsa.gov/travelers/airtrav...rial_1252.shtm

You can take all your stuff. You can take your cross stitch. There is no problem with the needle or the what I am assuming are small scissors. I think the blade has to be shorter than 4 inches for TSA

Crochet hooks, knitting needles and small scissors are all no problem and needlework needles.

I would call and check with your specific airport. I had a problem with small safety scissors when I wanted to do lanyard work. Also had a problem with a small screwdriver as well.( it was for my tap shoes ) Both were confiscated by TSA.

Just flew home on Delta 2 hours ago, crocheted on all my flights, I usually take small safety scissors (blunt tip) but I forgot them this trip, so I used nail clippers without any trouble.

I'm not sure about the screwdriver, but the scissors definitely should have been allowed. It's a TSA regulation, so it doesn't vary by airport. You were just unlucky and got a poorly trained agent.
