Custom-made circular needles

I would like to find circular needles with a long needle part. Does anyone know of anyone who makes custom circs?

Hats for Christmas

Yes I know it's rather late, but I've just managed to organise lots of the photos.

Hi guys...I'm new here, and I've got the knitting bug like you wouldn't believe (or maybe you would). Here's my first real project - a scarf I knitted for my wife.

Headed to Seattle

So it looks like I'll be in Seattle for a few weeks on business. Any LYS that are a must visit? Any suggestions for a fellow knitter?

Any suggestions would be welcome!

BSJ Blues

Uggh!!!! Is the BSJ really supposed to be this difficult? This is the second time that I have done this pattern and, again, I'm ripping things out for the fourth time.

My adventure with Queen Anne's Lace

My New Years resolution was to finish one really large project, with some yarn from my stash. I do have four other projects that I should be working on, but I really wanted to do this.

Is "pugly" an insult? An adverb?

A few months ago, a friend emailed me a picture of a knitted pug and asked if I could make some for him. He tends to be a smart-ass and I thought he was kidding.

knits: finished and otherwise

Well, the last time I wrote it was concerning the hat and giftcard. Good news! I did finish the hat in time for the gift exchange (barely) and I did decide to give the friar a giftcard as well.
