Several Other types of Bodkins
Yes, those are bodkins and very handy... Here are a few more types:

This is one I haven't seen before but similar to the one I have with a hook on one end and the ball at the other:

This one is great for pulling cords and turning small/narrow, tubular items, can't seem to find mine like this:

These are the two I can find. Used them for years when sewing and they are invaluable in my knitting work:

I use a longer bodkin type thing I got from a thrift store. It's like a long, thin crochet hook with an eye on one end and a hook on the other. It's about 7 inches long, and comes in very handy for dropped stitches/fixing mistakes.
