I LOVE THIS! My hubby and I just finished 2 pair of size 3's so I can make socks....Do you have any idea how long it takes to hand sand size 6 bamboo skewers down to size 3?

For the drill, we just used hand pressure and a very very tiny drill bit.

Thanks for this very useful tutorial. With my son's help I made a pair of large diameter (13.2mm) circulars that I could not find anywhere.


They worked beautifully.  I did give them a coat of polyurethane after sanding and then one final sanding, and had absolutely no problems knitting with them, even when using three strands of yarn.
