Default Rosewood Knitting Needles

I found rosewood knitting needles at Tuesday Morning for $4.99 a pair! From size US 3 to US 13. Crazy cheap price and if you have never knitted on wood needles you need to. So much easier on your fingers than metal and smoother than plastic. Just a joy to use.

Sounds neat....

(I'm a 3X sweater size, w/25" sleeves )

(PS... Is the right way to measure sleeves from the top of the shoulder, over the bent elbow to the wrist ??)

Enjoy...

I completely agree about wooden needles being easier on the hands. I have not used .rosewood but they sound lovely. I have used bamboo and they are smooth and nice

What knitting project are you currently working on, ozarkslady?

I've very recently "discovered" rug hooking (not latch hook). I recently bought an Oxford punch needle to try punch needle rug hooking as well. Deanne Fitzpatrick has some wonderful youtube videos on how to rug hook. I'm still working on my original small rug I'm trying. It will end up being the size of a hot pad for the kitchen table. I'm enjoying it.
