Update from Ravelry

Australian knitters and crocheters are celebrating a government decision to revoke the ban on bringing knitting needles and crochet hooks on planes. This change in heart came after more than 200 knitters and crocheters, many of them Ravelry members, flooded the government with submissions to a review of Aviation Transport Security Regulations in 2009, and align Australian standards with those in the United States, Israel, Canada, Europe, New Zealand and Singapore.
Ice picks and meat cleavers, however, are still banned from cabin baggage.

If in doubt, check the TSA website or your airline. Ask specifically about the type of needles you're thinking about bringing. :)
