Have you crocheted on an aeroplane?
We were talking about it the other day over on my crochet FB page "Ons Hekel".
Quite a few years ago I could still cross stitch on an international flight (KLM), but that was pre-2001. Sharp, pointy scissors and all. Was refused knitting needles in Kenya in 2003, had to repack before I could board.
So - the last couple of months, I tried with a cheapo plastic crochet hook that I didn't mind to loose if necessary. Also had success with a bamboo hook. My sis saw someone crocheting on KLM, if I remember correctly (mine were local flights, South Africa). And this weekend I went live and prepared to sacrifice my steel hook, on a local BA flight...
It went through security, they didn't pull an ear, none of the stewards said/asked anything, so in future I'll be hooking on the plane, a great way to while away the time (with a spare hook in my luggage, just in case...)
Have you tried it? Will you? Have you had different experiences with different airlines?
