Needlepoint VS. Airlines

If you're a needlepointer, like me, you need to carry some sort of cutting device with you to cut yarn.  However, airlines don't allow scissors or blades to be carried onto airplanes these days.  So, savvy needlepointers have come up with three ideas: 1)  carry an empty dental-floss case because the floss cutter built into the case will cut needlepoint yarn (this is what I have been doing), 2) carry nail-clippers, which will also cut needlepoint yarn, or 3) purchase this clever pair of tiny, short, round-tip scissors, called "Itty-Bitty Scissors" (this is what I want).
