Yesterday morning I decided to start my latest birthday present project and went to look for the knitting needles. I needed a 7mm circular needle. I think I must have nearly every size up to about 5mm, but no 7mm. Problem.
But then Eric came up with a good idea, what if he took an ordinary 7mm needle, cut it in half, drilled the bottom ends and glued in a length of strimmer wire, then tapered and smoothed each end? I've got to admit the end result was pretty good and just what I needed. Saved a trip to the shops and saved about 8 euros too!
I thought they looked quite professional when finished, don't you?
