traveling with knitting supplies

hi everyone!

i'll be flying back to college soon and i was wondering if any of you had a negative experience trying to get though airport security with knitting needles. i've flown with wooden needles before, but i'm working on a project with addi turbos and i'm not sure if i could get through security with them....i don't want them to be taken away! i know a few friends of mine have had their needles taken away. i'm afraid that if security does find them they won't believe that i knit and will assume that i plan on poking someone to death.....i dunno. am i just being paranoid?

Fashion Show

Alright boys, I’m turning to you for advise. I’ve spent a lot of time on this and would be grateful for your time reading this and hopefully responding. I’m in the process of putting together a community fashion and art show for the Spring of ‘07. I’m giving myself just over a year so I can spend the next two months to finish writing the proposal, finding resources and materials, locating potential venues, talking with interested artist, crafters, and models, and taking classes. And a year to create outfits and art. I’m an advanced knitter, novice seamster and needle worker, and just learning crocheting. I also make buttons, beads, jewelry, and other accessories. So, I have thousands of questions ranging from fashion show management and development to helpful books or web sites on clothing construction to opinion about materials and patterns, and any comments or tips are greatly appreciated.

"Knit Bits"

My PA (that's personal assistant and not Prince Albert) gave me as a New Year's gift a daily calendar called "Knit Bits".  It has a little piece about knitting for each day of the year.  I thought it might be fun to share them here throughout the year.

Enjoy!

Dec 31 - Jan 1  Knitting can be solace, inspiration, adventure.  It is manual and mental therapy.  It keeps us warm as well as those we like and love.  It has existed almost as long as the soft sheep, and in giving us wool they are deprived ony of an uncomfortably warm fur coat in the heat of the summer.  From Knitting Without Tears by Elizabeth Zimmermann  (On this date there is a picture of a woman knitting with the balloon which says "I'm knitalicious!")
