Custom tops by Judy Grill; needles by Twin Birch Products and Holz & Stein


Birch, rosewood, and ebony needles; tops made from wood, glass, anthracite, and rhinestones


Judy Grill's line of custom needles pays tribute to our endless compulsion for special knitting accessories. She begins with needle dowels from the expert German manufacturer Holz & Stein (with birch needles from Twin Birch Products) and then tops them with unusual ornamentations.

You'll find cheerful rainbow tops made of multiple layers of dyed wood veneer; balls of black clay embedded with rhinestones; shiny lumps of anthracite coal; and my personal favorite, richly colored iridescent glass balls.

The rosewood and ebony needles have a smooth finish, a long and gentle taper, and moderately soft tips. To read about the birch needles (exclusive of Judy's tops), click here.
