I'm sorry but individual agents don't determine risk. Threat levels are determined by our intelligence agencies and passed on to TSA. Events around the world determine threat levels.
Also, to another poster who mentioned individual airlines..those airlines are bound to the current TSA policy or the policy of the country they are flying out of. You'll NOT be able to fly out of Mexico with knitting needles carried onto the aircraft even if it is an American owned airline.
Please seek professional medical advice. I suffer from ulnar nerve impingement in my left arm and knitting for long periods of time will aggravate it. Without proper treatment, conditions like these can cause permanent damage. Your symptoms sound very similar to mine, please seek a professional for a proper evaluation.
When you log into your account you can look in your "messages" folder to see if the person responded to you. If you still have the same email address as when you created your Ravelry account and you set your account up so that you would receive notifications if someone messaged you, you will also receive an email notification.

It's not just gun shows where people can purchase firearms without licenses or training. Most states only require a back ground check for handgun purchases as mandated by the Brady Act...licenses are not required in all states. Long gun purchases don't even require a back ground check and no safety training is required for any firearm purchases in this country.
Back ground checks are only preformed on the person purchasing the handgun but not on everyone in the home who may have access to that firearm. It's perfectly legal for someone who lives with a previously convicted felon to purchase a firearm!!!
Our system is so full of holes it isn't even funny.

We had the exact situation you described. A couple of years ago a man walked into a local Walmart and started shooting. Other shoppers, who have concealed carry permits drew their weapons and by the time police arrived the gunman had fled but the police were left sorting out the mess of armed shoppers!!! The gunman then had the opportunity to be on the run for over 12 hours before he was apprehended.

No one shared personal medical information with me about a member. Not sure what makes you think that was the case. It certainly wasn't. Anything I spoke to you of in private conversations I expected you to keep confidential, so no I didn't expect you to share that information. I believe you have me confused with a certain former member's sister.
You do realize that shipping charges pay the salaries of USPS, UPS and FedEx employees? Plus postal workers in other countries if applicable? These are living wage paying jobs that cannot be shipped offshore.
Handling fees include the packaging and cost of paying someone to "handle" an order, no one works for free.
The convenience of on line shopping means we save on the cost of transportation to run around to several stores for the items we want to purchase and saves us time. The nearest "real" yarn shop to me is half hour drive west, so an hour round trip, plus gas and the cost of maintaining my vehicle, though I may NOT find exactly what I'm looking for. I consider shipping and handling fees a bargain over the alternative.
And you joined in agreeing that what JJ did was wrong. OK, you didn't mention her name at first, but it was clear who you meant.
I said that what was done was wrong, back in 2015 and I've mentioned it several times here that it was wrong, without ever mentioning a name. This has been discussed on KFC many times, with many excuses given. I've never changed my stance on this issue, it has always remained the same. I will NOT take the blame for what someone else did!! Would you? Every one of you at KCF knew who posted that information but you all sat back and said nothing as others were blamed. Even Katsch was blamed at one point...no one said a word. Only those who knew who posted the information would know who I meant.
You went into detail about what this member had to... (
Did I ever suggest you post that information? You posted information that I certainly never discussed with you. Did you enjoy having photos of your grandchildren posted, the homes you owned or any of your personal information? I'm guessing that you didn't. fortunate1 only posted the truth about how this whole thing got started because it is completely out of hand now.
For some people, it seems that the truth hurts and all I see are excuses being made.
Then explain why YOU sent me a member's full address? Along with school they attended, plus quasi mental health history?
I still have the pms
What is discussed in PMs is a whole different story than what is posted in public. As I recall we were having conversations and no I wouldn't know someone's medical history.
I don’t know what discussion prompted this topic a... (
So you're saying that you were able to make a mental health assessment on someone based on posts on a knitting forum? Her address was posted for more than just minutes but there was no need to post it. IF someone was that concerned a simple call to the local police would have been sufficient. Obviously the individual did not harm their children. Meanwhile, many have suffered the fallout from that action and you have not been one of them. I stand behind my words then and will echo them again, this was not appropriate then and it isn't appropriate now.
If I saw the reply I would not have done it again. I did not see it. You don't have to get nasty
I didn't get nasty, all you had to do was go back into your topics and you would have seen all of the advice you were given and the questions that were asked of you.
What is permitted by TSA today can change tomorrow. TSA has no authority anywhere but in the United States. When push comes to shove the crew of the aircraft actually have final say on what will and will not be permitted on any flight. Threat levels change and we can't expect that there won't be changes.
A few years ago I was on a flight and knitting. One of the flight attendants who also was an avid knitter stopped to admire my work and ask what I was knitting. Later another flight attendant came along and asked me to put my knitting away because a passenger complained about my "very sharp" knitting needles which were making them nervous. I opted to simply put my knitting away for the remainder of the flight.
My primary purpose of flying is for transportation, not knitting. I've come to realize that knitting needles may not seem like such benign instruments to others.
This is the second topic you have created regarding the same sweater and your issue with gauge.https://www.knittingparadise.com/t-596124-1.html
Several of us tried to help you and we asked questions but you never replied to those questions. Starting a new topic isn't going to do you any good if you aren't willing to provide further information.
