I'm a huge fan of TaraKnit. This is our very own Carol_OH's business.
To me it's just such an exciting concept. Her business started because she likes a good deal so she'd go on eBay and get batches of needles for cheap. But then of course, there's the dilemma: what to do with all of those extra needles?! It's only a good deal if you're paying for what you'll use
. So this is the service she's offering to others: You can now simply get the exact used needles that you want, the perfect type, color, size. It's recycling, money saving, and guilt-free indulgence at it's best!
You wouldn't believe the stash of needles I've purchased from her already. I'm amazed at how much I've gotten for how little cost. I wouldn't have done it if not for her business: I've replaced all of my wood and bamboo DPN's with metal ones (I like them more these days), and I've purchased needles for friends and to offer to new knitters that I teach. It's SOOO great to be able to indulge like this in needles! Plus it's recycling, and supporting a small business, so it's ethically awesome.
