I made some after watching Amy's video, too. SUCH a sense of accomplishment!
We have no local crafts stores in my small town, and our Home Depot was very
limited in their selection of sizes. I tried another local lumber company and found a much better variety of sizes there.
Oh, a neat tip; I was in Sally's Beauty Supply last week picking up hair color
, when I noticed cuticle sticks (called orange sticks?) on the counter. I picked up a handful since they were cheap. I measured them when I got home, and half were size 5's and half were size 6's. I'm going to take my needle guage with me next time, and pick up enough of both sizes to complete both sets. They're already pointed on each end, so I figure it will take very little sanding to get them ready to use as dpn's.
