I need to find a pair of US00 circular needles (32" or 40") but they seem to be nonexistant. I called every yarn shop in Philadelphia and I've been on the internets all morning, but I can't find anything--I can only find US0 or US000.

Does anyone know where I can find them? Does anyone want to sell me theirs?

I have never seen 00 circs, but I have 00 DPNs. What do you need 00 for, just out of curiousity?

The pattern is Eunny Jang's print o the wave stole. I have the same yarn as called for in the pattern, I might try the pattern with a size 0 needle.

i believe Eunny knit the stole with DPN's, so....anywho, i think that it would look just as lovely on 0 or even larger (if you enjoy a more airy lace) Grin

The pattern called for 00 circulars, but I went with a 0. It's working out nicely. Smiley

I did contact Eunny and she said that I could use Shetland Pins in place of 00 needles. I have yet to figure out what Shetland Pins might be, though.

Shetland Pins are really long DPN's...like 16" long.  i think that sounds hideous, myself! Tongue

Apparently no one makes circs in 00. I've seen DPNs in 00 but circs are made in 000 and 0...at least as far as I could tell. I looked everywhere on the internets.
