Searching for Wooden Needles
 
I am looking for wooden knitting needles made of Ash or Oak. Can anyone point me in the right direction?

My search for oak knitting needles:

a couple links from the search:

Searching for ash knitting needles was less productive.

Is there a particular reason for these woods?

Wondering why myself. I love my KP birch.

Here's a link to a company in Montana that makes Maple knitting needles.

Not sure if this will be helpful, but you can take a look when you get a chance.

Thank you. I have a few reasons for seeking needles made from certain woods, most of them religious.

I'll admit, stabbing a vampire with a wooden needle came to mind. It might not work though, needles are pretty small.

My reasons have nothing to do with vampires or other creatures of the night.

I don't know of any ash needles available for sale, but here goes my crazy brain at work. If you have a customer furniture maker in your area, they may have some scrap pieces of ash or oak from furniture making that could be turned on a lathe to your specifications. Just a thought...
