Yes, it is. I've never done anything with broomstick lace before.... But I was reading some stuff about it, checked it out and I was inspired! I actaully used a broomstick for it.
A size 50 knitting needle would work too tho.... we moved 6 months ago, and I've not had my own room since (shared with all my siblings) and so not all of my knitting supplies have been unpacked. And I was sick, so I didn't want to go digging through my boxes in the barn. LOL
