I am relatively new to papercraft and found it quite addicting, so I will share my experience up to this point and give some tips I found along the way.
Here we have my first paper craft. I was just beginning so I used normal printer paper, glue stick, elmer's glue, an exact-o snap off blade, and a text book for a cutting board(which I mostly did out of spite for that stupid class)
What I learned:
>Toothpicks are helpful. Plan out where you will start if your model does not come with instructions.
>Take your time, frustration will either force you to reprint or attach a not so good looking piece.
>You can get away with not using all of the pieces but that does not mean it will look good.

So a friend of mine who knows how much I love clocks and how much I like to make things (usually crafty things) bought me a book for making a paper clock. Picture related.
I have most of the parts that are required outside of the book, but one part has me confused. It says to use a size 0 knitting needle, but doesn't mention how long it needs to be. Besides having problems trying to find this size needle, I'm having difficulties finding how long or short this thing needs to be. Any knitting needles I've found close to that size are super long and I can't see them fitting in the clock to begin with and anything I can find on the book, no one seems to have a problem with figuring out the size. Perhaps I am being stupid, but I looked all through the book and didn't see anything.
I was wondering if anyone has had any experience with this particular book or with making paper clocks in general.
Thanks for your time.
