I'm going to be going home for a visit in a few weeks, and this will involve a very long plane ride. I intend to sleep through a lot of it, especially over the ocean, but for the rest of the time I'd like to bring my cross-stitch with me. I checked the TSA's list of what you can have in your carry-on, and it looks like blunt scissors are acceptable to bring. I have some of those, so I'm set there. But I didn't see anything on their list about needles. The needle I use is only about 1-1/2 inches long, and it's pretty blunt - a little sharp but I can't really even prick my finger with it.
Has anyone else had experiences with taking stuff like this on planes, or know where else I might ask to know whether this is ok to have on a plane?
