This is the best thread on craftster! My girl-friend and I are in the midst of making our own knitting needles, today is decorating day! I've just got a few questions:
How would tea staining the dowels work? It would just make them darker, correct?
If I wanted to use spray paint on the needles (not close to the tip, to prevent chipping) can you see any downside?
I heard that clay toppers can be a bit heavy and cumbersome while knitting - what is your take?
And about the olive oil - did it get your knitting oily? Or did it seep into the needles and work out nicely?
Thank you all!
