Cracks me up - battery powered knitting needles! well OK so they have a light in the end so you can see what you are doing in the gloom or using dark or fuzzy wool. But really, they ought to knit by themselves! Do you suppose if you left them by a bowl of porridge and a ball of yarn that they would be socks by morning!

I received my email from Lion Brand yarn with these little pointed lights on the front page... Lited needles :re:

I usually do not knit in the dark.. as a matter of fact I need my "specs" on in order to see my hands twisting the yarn...

there is a BRIGHT light on within my knitting area as well.

What will they think of next? :bluesmile

Silly me~I thought it was so people could knit in the dark! Makes sense to use them with dark yarn!
Can you tell I'm a knitter?? NOT!

Maybe they are for those "Secret Knitters" who hide their addictions in the closet~~~~~

I had a lady come into the store today and ask if we carried these needles. I said no and she was surprised.

My sister was telling me today that a lady that she works with has a pair of them so she can go to the movies with her husband, the movie fanatic, and she can still be able to knit while he watches his movies!!!

i just had a flash of brilliance. If I had a pair of those lit needles, I could still knit after dark when dh and I are traveling. Especially this time of year when we make our sojourns to West Virginia and beyond, we do quite a bit of driving after it gets dark as we usually drive until 7:00 or so in the evening when coming or going. I can see dh's face when I hit the switch and the lights come on in the ends of my needles. LOL :shock:

LMAO !!!
I knew I should have bought some in OR while I was there, but my sister knows I don't knit and would wonder why I had the darn things...I still like the magic wand idea...that if I had a pair I really could knit !!!
