Lisbon security

Returning to the U.S. from Portugal, my husband and I flew from Lisbon to London on Oct. 13, ’05. While going through security at the Lisbon airport, I had with me two metal circular knitting needles and a crochet hook, along with part of a baby’s sweater on bamboo circular needles.

The two metal needles and the crochet hook were taken from me. The bamboo ones were almost taken too, but the guard (who was very nice) relented. I think when he saw that there was work on them and that they were wooden and that I was a senior citizen, he let me keep my work.
