My Mom brought me a bunch of needles home one day from a friend of hers who didn't need them anymore and I found two of the pink sticks in with them. I put it next to a regular needle just for comparison, it's about the same length but the ends look like they have been cut off, anyone know what they are for?

I'm not sure, but could they be sleeves to upgrade a certain size of knitting needles to a bigger size?

They look like part of a hairpin lace loom to me. Like this, and the two plastic parts in the middle are missing.

yeah it does, thanks. Smiley
I've been using them as cable needles for now. I might want to try out hairpin lace i like the look of it
