Knitting in the dark is all but impossible unless you're a craft savant. But with this fun tutorial over on Instructables, you don't have to let the sun going down stop you from finishing that scarf, mittens or lovely sweater.
All you need to make these glowing lightsabre knitting needles is a couple of clear lucite rods, some small LED keychain-sized torches, red and green replacement LEDs, and being OK with the looks of pity you'll get when using them out in public. But that's OK. Being a knitting Jedi is a lonely life, but at least you'll be warm. [Instructables via Geek Crafts]
