Question by Passing Strangely: Could knitting needles be counted as a weapon in school?
So I’ve been knitting a lot recently and since I get all my homework done at home I have nothing to do during my study halls. I’ve checked out my school handbook and it says nothing about knitting needles in particular, but the study hall teacher I have is really strict about school rules.
If I do bring them in, do you think that I would be sent to the office for having a weapon? Even if I’m clearly knitting?

Question by : Oil or wax for finishing homemade wooden knitting needles?
I need to finish my homemade wooden knitting needles. Should I use oil or wax to finish them? Any brand recommendations?
Answer by WB
Oil may leave a smell, that might get on the yarn. I would recommend wax. An unscented furniture wax should be good.
Question by leia: Where can I purchase double pointed knitting needles that are of solid metal, not hollow?
My mother used to have double pointed knitting needles that were solid metal of some sort. She had many colors and lengths. I would like to find out where I can purchase some that are at least 10″ or longer. I use these for my hair. Nothing else works in existance. I can not use the light hollow needles, nor plastic or bamboo etc.
Thanks for your help in advance!!

Brisbane’s newest landmark, Kurilpa Bridge, cost .3 million and has been described as a cross between knitting needles, mobile magpie deflectors and a sailing ship.
The footbridge now spanning the Brisbane River paves the way for an estimated 50,000 people to walk and cycle between the CBD and the arts precinct at South Bank each week. Its unique "tensegrity" design combines tension and compression.
Kurilpa is the indigenous name for West End, the Brisbane suburb that is home to the arts hub.
Question by miss50sretro: Are there any polishing cloths/liquids for bamboo knitting needles?
I’ve looked all over the internet, and I can’t find a single thing to polish my bamboo knitting needles. Some of the polish has worn off one of my pairs, and I’d like to make it shiny and new again. If anyone knows where to buy something to polish them or where I could take them to get them re-polished, please let me know!
