They'd probably annoy people in the theater, but on long car rides? I think they would come in handy. You KNOW they were designed by a knitter.

I wonder if they are extra fragile because of the light inside... I'd be afraid of sitting on them and busting them.

Needles with Light...
Wow, uh huh, surely some married woman was at home trying to knit in the dark to not disturb her husband...lol....sounds like me however i didnt come up with the idea...

I wonder if they really work? I still think it would be difficult to see your stitches if the yarn was difficult to knit.

Hmmm, if anyone buys these let us all know how you make out...

Rhy :thinking:

I wonder how much extra weight the light would add to the needles?
