Excellent!  What needle size do you think you were getting with those?  And what'd you end up making?

Damn, that's smart. I so needed glowsticks when i was knitting in the dark the other night because I couldn't sleep. I still managed though. That's very...what's the word...innovative of you.

OMG!! Glow in the dark yarn??  Shocked you're kidding me, right?? (gotta get me some of that!!  Grin  Cheesy

It came out at about a 5mm gauge, I only did a few inches, then decided to rip it out, and use the yarn to make a shrug. I should have *just* enough.  Roll Eyes  Smiley

I have seen glow in the dark needles, but never knew if they would actually be any good.  I think that your glow sticks look like they work better, great idea.   https://www.woolstock.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&products_id=56&zenid=2d426542064789346581699ed294e360
I have never heard about the glow in the dark yarn until now, thanks Inara!!!  You guys have inspired me in a way I never would have know.
