I am having a hard time finding the kind of cable needle I want. I'd like a bamboo or wood cable needle, like the one Amy uses in the cable video. I keep looking, but can't find one, even online. Am I just missing them, or what? :??

That little dip in my aluminum cable needle is driving me nuts! :wall: I've actually been using a crochet hook or stitch holder to cable with, and neither of them is great, either.

Heehee!! Your welcome!! :thumbsup: I was there ordering some Boye Dpns I needed and a few clover dpns when I came across the cable needles and I was like "ooooooo, I need those too!" "Wait, someone posted saying they wondered where they could find some cable needles in wood?" BINGO!!!!!!! DING DING DING! LOL! :cheering:

LOL, I was on a treasure hunt myself trying to find the boye in dpns...finally found 'em at Herrshners. I also have the boye cable needles and LOL UGHHHHH they also make me nuts!!!!!! :doh: But yet I like the dpns...OK whatever...hehee...Guess I have a few issues :blush: LOL like they say..."different needles for different things..." :D Or whatever I'm in the mood to use...
