A couple weeks ago, one of the fellas was mentioning that he was looking for some needles that were a little longer to make it easier to keep in hand. Here's what I found:
I prefer to knit 2 at a time whenever possible therefore I need a really long circular, usually 40" since my hands are pretty large. I bought some from Amazon.com and have to say that I'm pretty impressed so far with the needles I bought. The set is a complete set from 0 - #15 and I ordered the 40" length, but they offer these complete sets in all the common lengths. The beautiful part is that the small sizes like 0 - #3 are all 5" long. The company is Stitchberry and the needles I got were the premium bamboo. As I like working with bamboo, I didn't look to see if they offer them in nickel or anything.
One last thing, I paid $20 for the whole set, so if anything should happen to any of them, I won't be out much and hopefully will have tons of projects made by then.
Almost forgot to mentiont that the cable is a non-memory type of plastic. I'm soooo happy with this purchase. Just thought I'd share.
