I'm so inspired from this board and I want to start right now, if only I weren't so stupid Smiley

We're in metric here in Canada and I find a lot of helpful translators. Here's a quickie:

US 9 = 5.50 mm
US 8 + 5mm
US 7 = 4.50mm
US 6 = 4.25 mm

And don't fret if you can't find 3.25 or other .25 needles. Just use 3 or 3.5 depending on how tight you knit. I've found a great needle measuring thing with holes in it to measure unknown needles and it has US, metric and imperial sizes.
