I needed size 13 DPNs and couldn’t find it at the store nor to trade here. So I made them per the instructional video. It’s the last link here:http://www.knittinghelp.com/knitting/basic_techniques/misc.php
They were SOOOOOOOOOOO easy to make and I got 6 needles for $1.49!!! I started whittling away, but then I grew a brain and decided to use that makeup pencil sharpener that has a larger hole (which I never use)! I might still whittle away a little just to make that pointy angle less, but it works!
