I made knitting needles!!
Best I can tell
- what with my complete ignorance of the subject -
these are a US size 10,
meaning I used a 1/4 inch dowel rod.
I din't go to all the trouble of using a nail file;
fine sandpaper seemed to work great.
I have no clue how real knitting needles should feel...
They only took 5 minutes total
including rubbing them down with baby bottom grease.
When Lily saw me hot gluing the buttons on
she said, "Oh! You're making sewing sticks!
Just like the chicken in Robin Hood!"
if a chicken can knit,
surely I can learn too??
