  • Made some knitting needles!

    I've been making resin knitting needles, these two are the only I've left at the moment as they've been selling, but I previously made pink with thicker glitter and some purple ones.... Any ideas for other colours/inclusions that may be popular?




    Thanks for looking.

            They are lovely... How about Bright orange with little Chick buttons on the top? ... perfect Easter gift! ( well I would buy them anyway! )

            Great Idea..well done!

              How on earth do you go about making knitting needles? I really like them though - very funky. Pity I can't knit.

                    Thanks- bright orange (or yellow) is something I could do, I was thinking about different inclusions rather than glitter, but I completely forgot about changing the end piece to make more of a feature of it! Thanks for the idea!

                      My step daughter would love those! Really funky. Its a great idea to customise the ends.

                          I love the clear glitter ones too. What sort of things can you use as inclusions? only inclusions I know are glitter or insects (in amber)

                            All sorts of stuff, I've been using moss a lot recently! It's hard to think of something small enough, I was thinking maybe sprinkles or sand, or embossing powder perhaps...

                              Are dried heather flowers small enough?

                              Possibly powdered turmeric or paprika - if they'll disperse and not clump.
