Taken care of

Dink, if you don't end up getting what you need, consider making your own needles. I made my own from watching Amy's tutorial (scroll to the bottom of the page).

The size you're needing is a fairly common dowel rod size. You can go to either a craft store, Wal-Mart, or a home hardward store to buy the dowel rods. Just take along a needle guage. Slip various size dowels into the holes of your needle gauge until you find the right size dowel you're needing. It took a little elbow grease, but it was super simple. I made a few pair that way, and the larger sizes seemed the easiest to make. My size 11 dpn's cost me less than a dollar to make, and an hour or so of my time. :happydance:

I'll be needing metal ones. Is that hard to make? My boyfriend is going to a metal shop soon to work on some stuff with a buddy of his. I could always sweet talk him into making me a pair. :teehee: That's a good thought! Thanks!

I don't know about you, but I have some duplicate needles, and I'm in need of some others.

If you have duplicate needles, and are in need of either a 1, or a 5 aluminum needles or maybe even a 10.5, please let me know, and maybe we can swap. I could use anything between 7-9, 11-12.

Sort of like an "I'll scratch your back if you scracth mine!" :hug:

Did you ever find any takers?

PM what size and type of needles you NEED, and I'll see if I have any. I have a TON of extra needles and would love to send them to a good home.
