Most definitely. I've seen them in just about every craft store around here -- Michaels, Hobby Lobby, Joanne. And they're pretty inexpensive, too.

My gauge came with my "learn to knit" kit, which I bought at Michaels

Gee, I feel dumb. I actually have one of those kits, and the needle guage. I even keep it in my current knitting project bag. I've just used it for the ruler, never even noticing the holes in it for guaging needle size .

Thanks, Kelly. :D

The chopsticks I got from the Chinese restaurant were actually bamboo ... I was quite pleased with the way they turned out after some moderate sanding. They're so nice and smooth & seem really quite sturdy.
Kewl, must be a really good Chinese restaurant.....the ones around here don't usually have high quality ones. I have a set of Size 2, bamboo DPN's and they do the job nicely. I'd thought about using bamboo too, I think there's a place some place in the western part of my state that grows bamboo if you can believe it. I've read it can grow here in certain regions?! Funky.

I've seen those multipacks of dowels too....but I'm stayin' away from them because I don't think they're as good an overall value as the larger dowels....especially being new to this procedure, running the risk of breakage and being without a replacement within the pack. Again, those multipacks look to be larger sizes too. But, they would eliminate most of the length cutting hassle for those who prefer not to do that kind of cutting.
