Glass Knitting Needles
I want, no I NEED GB Glass knitting needles. I bid on a pair on EBay but
lost :( They used to be sellers on Ebay. Once in a while a pair of their
needles comes up for sale, like the ones I didn't win. They are beautiful!
Does anyone know what happened to them? And where else can I get their needles? Thanks, Vera

I saw some today at a place called Hill Country Weavers in Austin, TX. You can Google the # if you aren't having any luck finding them anywhere else.
I'm a beginning knitter (at age 50, no less!) so I don't quite understand what is so special about them. Are they easier to use?

I don't think too many people use them. They're just so darned pretty!!

Wouldn't that be the irony of a lifetime. You buy glass knitting needles and then cut yourself so badly you can't knit. :rofling:

That would be horrible!

I think knitting with glass would be the same as knitting with those thin bamboo knitting needles. Or would glass be stronger?

I'm sure the glass needles are tempered to make them stronger, and I doubt they come too thin, but that's just my common sense talking.

They probably are tempered.

If I ever got a pair, they would only be used on special occasions.
