FO Bamboo Needles
1 Attachment(s)
Here are my size 4 bamboo dpn's I made.

The dowels I had picked out didn't contain a size 4 so I used bamboo skewers. They're a little trickier to get smooth but it's all good now. I sanded them and since I don't have a good pencil sharpener, I used an exacto knife (much easier than a pocket knife). I also used wax paper on them and put a bit of olive oil on them. I :heart: them!

THOSE ARE SO 8-) COOL 8-) !!! They look as though they came out of the store! EXCELLENT JOB :cheering: :cheering:

Thanks Rebecca :D

It was so much easier to use that exacto knife...I can get a more precise point. But an electric pencil sharpener is on my shopping list :D

I have a gazillion skewers so I'm going to keep practicing on some with getting the points nice.

I saved $8 though by making these!! :cheering: :cheering:

I have a friend that does all of her dpns from skewers, she told me that she gets various sizes from the grocery store & the $ store. Those really, really look great ;)

They look awesome! I wouldn't know the difference between them and a set of Clover dpns... other than the fact that yours are sharper. Which I LOVE sharp points on small needles! :thumbsup:

Great job! I did mine with a pencil sharpner I got at target for $10...I figure make a couple of needle sets and it pays for itself.

Thanks guys...yes, I like mine kinda sharp too.

I'll have to look at Target for a sharpener. Do you think I'd still be able to stick a size 4 in there?

They really look GREAT!! I tried those once....didnt quite have the patience to get them smooth enough.

kemp 11-17-2005 07:43 PM

oh yeah...I did size 2-8 4's shouldn't be a problem :thumbsup:
