Knitting in the dark

They arrived today. As soon as the children realized what was in the box, they rushed me into my closet and begged for a demonstration. So I cast on a Mason-Dixon babybib and they took pictures.

It looks like a miniature light saber fight. I don't know how annoying it would be for other patrons in a movie theater. I'm hoping we'll try it out tonight in Steve's office with a DVD we've been wanting to see. I'll sit on the sofa between two children and ask them how much they notice the lights. Steve usually sits in his recliner at a slight angle to the sofa, so he can tell me how it looks from the side. It will be great if he says the light is not noticeable.

Joan took one picture with flash:

The needles are plastic and fairly flexible. They are 14 inches long, so I worry that they'll flail about somewhat as I knit. For the few moments I used them I did find them enjoyable. That teeny little light is extremely bright!

Glow in the dark knitting needles! Yes, we'd have been crammed in a closet, too. It's quite ingenious, though.

Laura! I laughed just looking at the pictures. :-)

I don't know about the movie theater--I would be distracted but then I'm always so curious about what's going on around me.

Maybe you could stand up before the movie started and announce your intentions and give a brief demonstration and then everyone's curiosity will be satisfied.

Jeannine, you are *too* FUNNY!!! I could just see myself doing that - and being ushered out of the theater... But perhaps if I sat in the back row knitting and muttering softly - counting stitches, of course - no one would dare come near me!

That might work. :-)
