Needle size ?
I have a pair of wooden needles made out of dowels by a friend of mine.
Approx. what size would they be?? They are a tiny bit smaller around than my little finger, if that helps, LOL

You'd need a needle gauge to know for sure. Here's one, but there are many. Most stores like Joanns, Michaels, Hobby Lobby, etc should have them as well.

That depends on how big they are. If you don't have a needle sizer, try comparing them to drill bits, knitting needles, or dowels of known thickness, or use a ruler to get an approximation.
