Knitting Needles

Many of us know someone in the fiber arts. And many of those people will be knitters. In fact, you may even have a knitter in the family!

With these projects, you'll be able to learn the process to making knitting needles in the shop and may even be persuaded to give it a try!

 

Turning your own Knitting NeedlesTurning your own Knitting Needles
By: David Reed Smith
In this photo tutorial, David shows us the method that he uses to make knitting needles.

David shows us how to safely make a small turning bland and then shows us many ways to hold the blank on the lathe. His incremental turning and measuring technique is by way the most reliable way to turn anything this thin.

He also shows some great ways to dress up the knitting needles for their maximum beauty!!
