Turns out chopsticks make pretty good knitting needles.
To make the ends pointy, I sharpened the chopsticks in a pencil sharpener.
I was able to teach my daughters some knitting basics on these.
Quickly sharpen the ends of your chopsticks until the ends are pointed, but blunt - a few cranks should do it.

Brilliant! I’m definitely going to try this with my kiddos, especially as we have a billion bulk chopsticks and hardly any knitting needles. 🙂 I pinned it too. Thanks!

That’s such a clever idea! I’m going to run our chopsticks through the size guage right now!
