I received handmade knitting needles for Christmas; they are made from dogwood. I was wanting to start a scarf for a cancer patient and am glad I waited to use the new needles. The yarn is slippery and a bit splitty, but these needles seem to be just what I need. They are soooo lightweight, and are just "sticky" enough to keep the yarn where it belongs without dragging.
The needles were made by Amelia Chambers, who resides somewhere in northern Georgia (USA). I'm so glad my niece ran across them and remembered me.
I tried to find these needles on Google searches, but no luck.
I anyone knows how to get in touch with Amelia Chambers, I love to hear from you here at this blog.
