Following Amy’s tutorial, I made my first set of needles out of a dowel rod tonight. :cheering:
I started out with the intention of making a pair of size 7 dpn’s, so I’ll be all set to make a hat when my newly ordered Denise’s arrive in a few days. Then I remembered there was a pattern I was wanting to try that uses straight size 7’s, but I have no size 7’s, sooo, I made a pair. I’ll go back to Home Depot and pick up another dowel tomorrow and make a set of dpn’s.
It was surprisingly easy, and I have such a sense of accomplishment. I’ve tried them out, and they work great. The best part is that they cost me well under a dollar! :mrgreen:
