When I couldn't find the size of double pointed needles I needed for these socks after searching 3 or 4 stores, I decided to make my own out of a hardwood dowel. I shaved the tips down with a pocketknife, and then sanded them smooth by rubbing them on sandpaper.
Recently I joined postcrossing.com, a random address generator for people all over the world who would like to swap postcards. In my first outgoing batch of five postcards, I randomly got an address in Denmark of another knitter. So I send her the postcard with my knitting blog address. When she gets the postcard she emails me her blog address, and not only are we both knitters with blogs, we both have recent pirate/skull knitting projects. So I posted mine here so she could see it. To see hers, go here: http://www.lioness.blogs.com
