So 'N' at BAA Glasgow says that it's "absolutely fine" to take knitting needles on board an aircraft with hand luggage. "Not a problem" she says - apparently I just made it, as they changed the rules a couple of weeks ago. (I was under the impression from my 'Google' research that this changed in April 2005.)
Fingers crossed that all will be fine - although I may call again nearer the date just to hear someone else say it. There is no mention of knitting needles on The List on their website.
I'm a little alarmed that BAA feel it necessary to tell passengers that fireworks are not allowed in hand luggage...
Well - of course me and the boy were in watching the start of Big Brother last night - there is a knitter!! And he's Glaswegian!! And by all accounts so far, an hyperactive pain in the arse ... och well.
I've been plodding on with the blanket - about 1/3 of the way through - and Branching out - about 6 repeats done so far. Neither project is particularly exciting me right now - but I am determined to get down to 1 complicated and 1 easy project by the end of BB.
Crap! I've just lost everything moving from preview mode back to writing this - I'm not in a writing mood anymore *humpf*
Will come back later :(
