Everything else in the world has LEDs in it, why not knitting needles and crochet hooks? MAKE mag is highlighting some LED illuminated knitting supplies. I still don't understand the appeal of knitting. Do people actually wear the crap that they knit/crochet or is it simply a hobby to give their hands more carpal tunnel. Regardless, no more worries about having that pesky light on when trying to knit. These LED knitting needles and crochet hooks can illuminate the work area so you can accurately make those scarfs that nobody will wear or care about. Prices hover around the $40 range for a set.
