From chopsticks to knitting needles in no time flat!
I like to recycle and reuse all material. So I made a pair of knitting needles from Chopsticks! This project is really easy as long as you know how to sharpen a pencil. If not this will take all your brain power!

    Step 1

    Firstly, find a pair of chopstickes. You can get a FREE pair at a Chinese Restaurant. I found mine in my closet. How they got there the world may never know! Make Sure their clean because you don't want to be knitting with dirty chopstitchs. What would the neighbors think!

    Step 2

    Sharpen the pointy-end of the Chopstichs. Not too sharp! You know so they don't hurt nobody.Just sharp enough so it has a round point.

  • Step 3

    Now you have you own pair of knitting needles. Thank you for saving the planet! I know it's not much but those stickes were just gonna still in garbage if it wasn't for you.
