The LYS is now carrying the Hiya Hiya needle line with DPNs in stainless steel, and circulars in stainless and bamboo. One of the features of this brand (hello, sock knitters!) is the 9" circulars. Yup, nine inches total length in US sizes 0, 1, 1.5, 2, 2.5, and 3. Even in bamboo.This pair came home with me, partly out of curiousity and partly freakish cuteness. And these aren't the small ones; these are 1.5's.
I haven't tried knitting on them yet, but I forsee some drastic technique changes. Report later.
