I found some tapestry needles as I was searching through my dwindling supply of yarn yesterday. I decided to take a picture, to give a visual to those of you who ask what kind of needles I use to sew in my yarn tails. These are tapestry needles size 16, about 2" long. They work well for yarn. I will be using them in an upcoming tutorial for a crochet stitch. I like the big eye, which makes it easy to put the yarn through. There are different size tapestry needles to choose from. I just purchase something that looks like the yarn will fit through the eye and never really looked at or thought about the size until today. As long as Wal-mart continues to carry yarn supplies, you will be able to purchase tapestry needles at Wal-mart. You can also purchase them from Michaels, AC Moore, Hobby Lobby, Joann Fabric and Crafts as well as stores online.
