I made Futurama brain slug knitting needles!
Here
and here

I think they're size 7mm or so, using pre-cut dowel and Fimo clay. I haven't used them to knit anything yet so I don't know how well they'll hold up.

Thank you! It was cold down there on the floor!

Ok, I made a pair. I didn't put anything on the ends of these yet. I've got a couple of beads I'm thinking about glueing on. I won't post the pic here because I posted them under completed projects and I don't want to double up with the same pics. Here's a link to the topic though. http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=193101.0  Grin

Knitting is very conducive to thought.  It is nice to knit a while, put down the needles, write a while, then take up the sock again.  ~Dorothy Day

I made some DPN's using this tutorial.  They were alot of fun to make that now I want to go back to Walmart and get more dowels.  My dowels were $0.42 each and I purchased 2 to get 5 DPN's.  They are a size 10.5.  I had some left overs from the dowels that I need to put ends on and paint them. 

Thank you for this tutorial!  It was really alot of fun.

This thread is awesome! Thanks so much for the idea/tut/inspiration! I just got started knitting last year, and the prospect of buying ALL the different sizes of needles was really daunting. Thanks thanks! I'm making some myself on saturday! Grin

I love my polka dots Ive been making, these are not stained, but some of them I have stained and they are so fun to knit with, this particular dowel I used is coated with polyurethane and is so super smooth, the smoothest I have been able to fin, I get the dowels from Dick Blick arts supply, barely any sanding is needed  - I want some for every holiday now
