I was thinking that maybe I could take the few Options I have and see if I could find someone to engrave the sizes on the needles for me.Wouldn't you think if I had it done small enough the yarn wouldn't snag on it? Just thought I'd ask your opions before I decide to do it or not.

TBH.. I totally wouldn't... they're so smooth and slick, any little inconsistancy (not to mention, they're quite a thin material), could jeopardise the integrity of the needle...

Hi Momwolf

It's a good idea to get some kind of indentification on them - maybe the best thing to do would to take them to a jeweller and ask their advice. It can do no harm, asking about them. Wowsers! are they really sooooo thin?

All the Best

Julie,
I use to work for a pewter company in New Hampshire and we engraved some very delicate items and then they were buffed very smooth. A jeweler would be able to tell you if it is possible to do with Options. If you enquire could you let us know? Thanks! anne
