Small gauge DPNs

I wonder if anyone has any suggestions for DPNs below US size 0. I'm looking for something like 00 or 000 and I wondered if anyone has gotten any brands that they have liked in particular and/or have held up well. And if so, where did you purchase them? I have really liked all the Knitpicks needles I have used, but they only go down to size 0. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

Hermit Crab

Hi Guys! I wanted to share with you a hermit crab that I knit from a pattern by Hansi Singh. It was a project that I started last fall. We were in PA visiting my parents and on the way home I wanted something to work on. I ended up getting most of the legs done on that trip.

Beware of Alligators!

One of the more recent projects I've made is another "toy." I like how portable they are to work on since they're mostly done in small parts. And I've become quite fond of the piecing together stage for some reason. Mattress stitch is our friend, after all!

My knitted monster, Geet!

Hi Guys! After knitting two shawls, which I really enjoyed, I decided to take a bit of a break before starting on a third. They were fun to make but were more involved projects that took some amount of care and attention.

Combined knitting

A day or so ago, 'kiwiknitter' posed a question about PK (Portuguese knitting).

PA yarn shops?

I am currently in Pennsylvania (Bloomsburg) visiting my parents. I will be here for the week and wondered if anyone could recommend any good yarn shops in the northeast part of the state?
