Knitting Needles Galore



Dave has been busy. For someone who doesn't knit, he sure makes beautiful needles. These he made of Red Mahogany, Canary, Wenge, Cocobolo wood. The shafts are Birch and he spends a long time sanding them with 5 different sandpapers for an ultra smooth finish before sealing them. They feel so good on the finger tips, it sure beats aluminum.

What beautiful knitting needles, would make knitting a joy compared to the clicking of metal.

These are stunning. I much more prefer to knit with wood than metal. It just feels right. My seven year old feels the same way.
