Chinese needles

  My Chinese doctor came back from a trip home and brought me a pair of knitting needles. They are metal, but unlike any other metal knitting needles I've ever seen: they are hollow. This makes them very light and also less cold to the touch than regular metal needles. They are very long — 17.5" (44.5cm) — and still amazingly light. Apparently they are the latest rage for knitters in China. I've got to get around more.
