Looking for creative solutions

I cross posted this information into the Black Belt Knitters website, but I thought I'd show it here as well. Heck, I might even post it in my knitting blog as well.

Anyhow, in ATA TKD, during your second degree black belt curriculum, there comes a midterm that you have to do in which you create a totall creative form. It can be open hand or closed hand, and you can use traditional weapons as well as unconventional weapons as well. I've seen people use pool/billiards cues, golf clubs and the like before. So, even during my color belt time, I would be looking ahead, thinking about what I might use when my turn came in a few years.

So, here I was, cruising the internet (as usual), looking at some new knitting websites I hadn't seen before, as I was looking for a specific yarn that's becoming difficult to find. In one of the shopping sites, I found this:

Yes, those are what you think they are. GIANT KNITTING NEEDLES. Oh, what a grand discovery for someone like me who loves knitting AND TKD! So, you can guess what I'm thinking. ;-) When I saw this, I thought, "A-HA!". I could see using these in place of a double short ecrimas/double bahng-mah-ee for a routine. Oh, that would be too rich!

Hmm. I think I'll have to bookmark this one, in order to save it for the future. Oh yeah, I can see it now...heh heh instructor will just be rolling her eyes at this one, but I know it will certainly garner attention, for sure...
