Over the holidays, DD#2 and I made some dowel rod knitting needles. How cool are they? Took my knitting gauge to the store to figure out what size to buy. DD#2 now has size 8's, I have size 11's, and a set of 10.5 dpns. Just sharpened the ends with a pencil sharpener, lightly sanded the whole thing, and made polyform clay ends. (And that 's much harder to do. Thought we'd be experts by the number of times we've seen clay on the Carol Duvall show.) Super simple, and cheap--the most expensive item was the sandpaper!
