Making needles
For thosse of you who make your own knitting needles, (i.e. going to the hardware store and getting dowels the same diamter as needle sizes and putting them inthe pencil sharpener) what do you use on the wood? Wood oil, varnish, nothing? I want find a way to give them just a hint of finish.
