I went to Michaels yesterday to look for US 4 dpn for my baby bib/burp cloth project. They didn't have any and I don't have time to wait for an order. So I purchased bamboo size 4 straights and my dad snipped the caps off and made me a set of 2 size 4 dpns! His hobby is making furniture for the family (all the grandkids have a bedroom suit) and refinishing furniture for others. Afterwards he said they were still too rough and suggested using wax paper on them. I just my Dad.
