I went by the thriftshop in town after having lunch with a friend, and lookie what I found!
Lots of knitting needles, dpns and some weird wooden crochet hooks. I got the whole bunch for about the same as buying one new pair of knitting needles at Walmart. :) And there were only 3 or 4 with no mates....so I'm doing the happy dance!
Now I just need to get something to store all my knitting needles in. I have them in a big tupperware container right now. And it just doesn't work. My circulars fling all over the place and get tangled, and it just looks nasty.
I think I have too many needles for one of the sewn needle holders....not sure what to do.
