Knitting with pencils
Here's a great video I wanted to share about knitting with pencils. This is a great idea for teens, especially at slumber parties.

I know someone who knit with sharp pencils on a plane! They don't seem to confiscate those. She's also put a crochet hook or needles in a pencil case.

I learned to knit and sharpenend my brother's tinkertoy sticks in the pencil sharpener for needles. They were about size 8 or so, penciles would be about 10 or 10s. You can also use chopsticks.

My mother taught my brother, sister and myself to knit with toffee apple sticks and string. We were so proud of ourselves.

I like the idea of pencils on the plane.

My boss (Night Manager) taught me to knit with pencils late one night when the cafeteria was slow!
