I have made needles in a similar fashion to make needles for a homeschool knitting class I taught. Instead of white crayon, I used wood preserver oil and very fine sandpaper. I coated and sanded the needles about three times. I tested with yarn after each sanding to make sure they were smooth. I let the kids make sculpey clay tops. This is a wonderful project for people to try.

Thanks so much. I work part time for the YMCA in the afterschool care department. Yesterday some of the kids saw me knitting and were very excited and wanted me to teach them. I can't afford to buy needles and yarn for the 8-10 kids who were interested so this is a great idea for me. Plus the kids can make their own needles before beginning their knitting lessons!


This is a great project =] I love knitting and want to try to make my own needles!! Looking forward to useing all the tips. Thanks!
