I finally got around to organizing my knitting needles and now I have 3 needles that don't have a mate.  I saw on etsy someone made bracelets out of em (not something that I would wear).  Anyone have any other ideas?

Here are some cute jewelry ideas, depending on the material and your skill level: http://www.greatgreengoods.com/2008/05/02/recycled-knitting-needle-jewelry/
if none of these do it for you, you could always turn them into hair sticks, either straight ones, or if they're double pointed, bend them into a hair fork.
Also, if you or someone you know is into making chain mail, or chain mail jewelry, you could always use the needles to wrap wire around for coils and rings ^_^

There is nothing on earth more entertaining than watching a pack of half-grown puppies playing in snow for the very first time.

I would just hang on to them.  You never know when you'll break or lose a needle. And it usually happens when the stores are closed.  I'm assuming you already have pairs of the same size as the mate-less ones.

You could use them as plant supports for your houseplants.

You could knit a "banner" either with a saying, or picture from it, then leave it still attached to the 1 needle and use it as the banner rod, just make a string or ribbon hanger that will hang up your new creation.....wish I could knit, this post gave me an idea for one Wink

If you washed it, could you use it as a cake tester?

Have fun & post your pics!
