Well, with all the hullabaloo of foiled terror plots on flights from the UK to the US, looks like the infamous banned objects list has been updated. I haven't checked yet, but I'm sure knitting needles will make it back to being banned again. Bummer.
I have a few friends trying to make their way to NYC from San Francisco. Their layover in Chicago probably ended up being longer than planned. When last I talked with them, they had just gotten to Chi Town and were told they had to get rid of all liquids in their carry on luggage.
I am glad I'm not traveling any time soon. I feel for all the folks trying to get around out there now. Better safe than sorry I guess. I wish all a safe journey and lots of patience.
