Funny about the chopsticks. They'd probably work in a pinch.

A few months ago, I posted a photo of the chopstick knitting needles that my MS students made when I taught them how to knit. They worked fine- but, we did have a couple that SPLIT when they were used.

You know your a knitter when....

You go out to dinner with your husband and spot a lady with her hair up and say, "She's a knitter. She's holding her hair up with a double-pointed knitting needle."

No lie. I said that this weekend.

what you could knit out of the noodles

Well... um..... I was doing that last night while waiting for the "almost done" knit.... er, speghetti to finish cooking.
I also have knit with chopsticks...... I can also eat with them, which freaks my family out as I've never known anyone that actaully uses them. And I know how to use them right. I grabbed a couple packs a while back and my unc was like, "Flower! Put those back! Those are for people actaully going to eat with them." LOL, well, I am. And then to his astonishment, I procedded to eat everything (including rice) with out a "civilized" silver ware. :D And then I took them home and knitted with them.

Great minds think alike! I hadn't even seen this thread until this morning, and yesterday I decided to pull out my chopsticks to use at lunch . . . and just on a whim I stuck them in my needle gauge to see what size they are!

(They're a US Size 10-1/2.)

I used arrows to decide if I wanted to go out and buy some needles.
