I Gnome I saw your post about tapestry needles and I'm not a part of that group so I thought I'd write you a message here. I've brought knitting needles on planes before without an issue. I bet it wouldn't be a problem. You could always call ahead and ask. I know I do a lot of knitting while my husband is gone to keep my nerves contained. :)
Hey! Absolutely.. I'll inbox you his number.. he is really informative and super helpful. I would recommend having him take you there.. even tho they say the line goes quickly getting into RTC, it was at least 2 miles in length for our daughter's PIR. She had 12 div. grad. so it was a big grad. He drops you right at the gate and you just walk in and get in line. There were ppl. getting into grad. right up to 9:00AM.. we got in and were seated by 7AM. or so. We called when we were ready after graduation and he was right there to pick us up.. all 10 of us. he knows area restaurants and such, just nice to have someone there that knows what's going on.
