Making your own knitting needles
Hey ladies,

Wonder if someone can tell me where to go get dowel rods. I went to Lowes and the selection was so poor I walked out empty handed, there was only about 5 different sizes and I already had them all. I was hoping for a larger selection.

Also, is there something to put on the bamboo needles to make them more slick without ruining the yarn. I notice it seems difficult to get my yarn up the needle, but admittedly I do knit a little tight. If there is nothing I can apply to the surface I might just focus my attention on aluminum needles.

Thanks in advance for your help!
