View Full Version : Look at these needles!

I want a set of these (http://www.agoodyarn.net/N_Glass_knitting_needles.htm) needles! They are a bit pricey...but really pretty! I can't decide what size or design to get. Has anyone ever used these before?

Oh wow, those ARE cool!!! :inlove: I don't know if I'd have the guts to actually use them though!

For some reason I think of Alice in Wonderland when I look at those. I think those would be nice to have, but just for pretty, not to actually use. It seems like they would be heavy. :thinking:

I'd be afraid to use them, too. Glass against glass? :thinking:

They are purdy, though!

LOVIN the CONES!!! :inlove:

they're BEAUTIFUL!

They're pyrex, so they're pretty durable, huh!?

They look pretty thin to me, and they're hollow. Maybe not too heavy.

I think that someone on here has some, but I don't remember who... :thinking: !! She'll pop in & tell us ;) ...and...
I WANT SOME....they are too, too 8-) cool 8-) !! I would think that they would be durable since they are pyrex, too!
But, alas...I'm sticking with my addi's .... of which my sweet, sweet :inlove: Lonnie got me 2 sets of today for Thanksgiving :cheering: :cheering: :cheering: I'm the luckiest girl in the world :happydance: :happydance:
EDIT...OOPS :oops: I was mistaken..HE ORDERED 4 SETS :cheering: :cheering:

very pretty wonder how they would work... with a 2yr old and 5yr old though I don't think I'd be able to use them have to put them up HIGH for looks :D

I saw a display of glass needles at an antique mall...(the needles weren't antique)...and the note said they were for display only...these (pictured) might be different than what I saw...

OH MY WORD, those are purdy.

11-25-2005, 01:34 PM
WOW!!! Those are purdy!! I think they would be pretty durable since they're pyrex...justthink they are oven safe! :roflhard:

:roflhard: :roflhard:
And dishwasher safe...if she could stuff herself inside, she could get a shower, knit, and felt at the same time. Wooo Hooo--their time savers as well!!! :roflhard: :roflhard:

*P*O*P* ;)
I actually also have some glass needles. I got mine off Ebay... But these are awesome. The ones I have are kewl but I like that these are fairly uniform, granted the colors they say may have some variation due to the nature of the creative process... but there is more regularity in needle size...and i love chunky needles... The prices really seem right on with what i paid for mine. i haven't knit too much with mine but i know i can. they are really slippery but i'm sure it depends on what yarn you use.. . i tried ribbon and it was hard. as long as you don't whack them together or drop them on concrete they should be pretty durable.
Here's a couple pics i posted.. the tops are really pretty, the pictures don't do them justice... my glass needles (http://www.knittinghelp.com/knitting/forum/viewtopic.php?p=28113&highlight=glass+needles#28113)
now, to get my own computer fixed so i can save it to favorites!

I'd be too nervous to knit with those! I'd broken far too much pyrex glassware in lab to be entirely comfortable with it! (There was one time I broke a beaker by slamming a hood sash down on it - it was like it exploded! And then once I broke one with a hammer. Entirely accidentally!)

But they certainly are pretty.

You'd have to try hard to break them... but knowing lots of people who make handmade lampwork beads & sculptures, I wouldn't buy them. They're a bit overpriced for the materials and work that's involved (which ain't a whole lot).
