Knitting walking sticks!

Ravelry is a great website/forum for knitters and crocheters *if that is actually a word*, I frequently search through patterns and in fact I think 99% of the projects I have made I have originally found there.

The next thing I want to make requires these:


They are huge, I photographed them next to a pencil so that you can compare the sizes! I knew they were going to be big but when they turned up I was amazed, I've never seen knitting needles that large before.

Now...... for another feature that has been missing in action:

I love it..... and it doesn't matter that they are looking somewhere else. Definitely one to scrapbook!

Wow - they are impressive! Can't wait to see the project that needs them!
I decided to "borrow" your Photo of the Week feature when I read one of the new BFS prompts to try and get me to initiate a weekly post so I am so pleased to see it return here too! x
