I thought that you made needles by going to the store and making the person that works there show you where the ones u need are located

LOL, a friend of mine uses cooking skewers. She said that they come in a multitude of sizes, buys a bag for $1-$2 and she does the refining with wax paper & then puts a drop or 2 of vegetable oil in her hand & begins rubbing her hands together vigorously & then grabs her (now) needles & continues rubbing them & with the heat from the friction the needles absorb a bit of the oil (not so much as to make them slippery, or even so that u can feel the oil) and she tells me that they are then very, very smooth & knit very nicely. Said she will never buy another dpn . I believe she uses addi's for everything else.
