Clever Husband . . .

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?
