What needles do you recommend, the project I'm doing needs either size 00 or 0.

Addi just came out with a line of lace needles which are supposed to be pretty good. I am going to try them on my next lace project so I will report after I start.

Lace Addi's don't come any smaller than a US 1 right now Cry  But Addi swears it's adding smaller sizes in the next year, or so my informant (an LYS worker/ lace fiend) tells me.  The regular Addi's go down to 0.  The tips aren't as pointy, and the nickel is slipperier than the lace Addi's, but they work fine.

Knit Picks circs only go down to a 0.  So, I think, for a 00 you're going to have to look at Lacis (scroll down to CIRCULAR KNITTING NEEDLES), they carry 000+ (I think).

Use your favourite bamboo or wooden ones and sharpen the tip?

I am a loser and just use cheap-o metal needles. They're sufficiently pointy for regular lace. I bought Addis for the Trellis Scarf from Interweave, though--that 7 stitch cluster was a bugger!
