:manyheartI had this happen today as I went to court with my husband for family business. I put my bag on the xray belt, and the guy at one end first saw my water bottle in the image and I had to show it to the female police officer. Like a water bottle is terrible. Then the guy noticed a crochet hook and yelled about Knitting Needles. So I said it was a crochet hook and it was plastic. My choice was to bring it back to the car, (about a 2 block walk) or I asked if I could throw it away. They let me throw it away. It was just a cheap hook, but it was the big deal they made of it. So we had arrived about 35 minutes early and I had nothing to do with my hands. It made me sad, because I could have gotten a few rows done on a prayer shawl. Well, I have learned my lesson and won't bring any hooks or needles to the courthouse if I have to go again. That sucks. Has anyone else had this difficulty? Or was it just this courthouse that was overzealous with the rules? I know I have brought them into the courthouse in my county and didn't have a problem. I'm glad I only had the one hook with me. What's your opinion on this?
