The only thing I have ever lost is a pair of sewing scissors. I didn't have time to go out and mail them to myself.No trouble with needles or hooks.

Actually, even pointy scissors are now okay as long as the blades are under a certain length, I think it's 2". I routinely take nail scissors on board with no problems, even on most international flights (Stockholm, Amsterdam as examples).

I fly with multiple pairs of nail clippers every time I fly -- the one in my knitting project in addition to the one I always carry, for nail clipping purposes, in my purse. I have never, ever had any problems. Nail clippers are allowed items on domestic US flights. They're what I'd recommend carrying for yarn- or thread- clipping purposes over scissors, which even though they're now allowed people still seem to occasionally have problems with.

Although I know many people fly with them without difficulty (presumably because they don't look threatening in the X-ray) remember that the circular pendant cutters are explicitly NOT allowed by the TSA.

Someone once suggested that if you have dp bamboo needles and are questioned about them, just say they are chopsticks. I don't know if that will work, but it might.
