in the very last box I asked for more needlework info and projects for men.

Circular needles

I knit a lot of scarves with multiple yarns...often five strands...and I'm always bothered by the difference between the cable and needle sizes..
I've used the large size AddiTurbos...but prefer the warmth of wood or bamboo...
...so I made some!
These are turned of Rosewood and Kingwood...with brass fittings.
The odd things inside the vinyl cable are Swarofski crystals... just for fun... they roll around when I knit...
One can never have too much Glitz!!!

They are US17 and US19
