what am I hoping for? finished with new photos
I am trying to make knitting needles for my 3rd and 4th grade knitters. I am in the process of making these tops today. Has anyone ever made any polymer tops? and if so, how did you adhere them to the needles?

bottom photos show finished product

When all else fails...get epoxy. That stuff will hold anything together.

Gorilla Glue

OMG that stuff holds tight, and not as brittle as super glue

I second the gorilla glue! I have never made these tops like you are, but that glue can do amazing things...

Today some of the girls knitted with them and were very excited! I have to make more SOON. I chose the purple clay because our school colors are purple and turquoise. I just wished I had had my camera with me, to photograph them.

If you use gorilla glue (amazing stuff!) be aware that it expands a lot when it dries.
