I was very inspired by the tutorial on making your own needles, so I did!
I’ve made one set of 4mm dpns + straights + a cable to match. I’ve got a set of 5mm’ers in the works, I also have dowel for 6mm & 8mm. I can’t get tiny tiny dowel, so anything smaller than a 4, I either have to sand the bejeses out of a 4mm, or just buy them in either bamboo or casein.
Worked out to about AUD$20 to make cables, dpn’s and straights in 4 sizes… NOT BAD!!!
