I'm desperately searching for an online (or London based!) shop that stocks plastic needles.

I got a job lot of needles on Ebay a while back, and in there were several sets of plastic DPNs, which I quickly fell in love with, but now  can't seem to find anywhere that sells them!  And now I've used them I'm finding metal too cold/slippy and wood too sticky  Sad

If they're based in the UK, all the better, but I have "stash enablers" based in the US and Australia that could act as delivery points if needs be!

help!  Grin

Bryspuns are plastic and I recently saw double-pointed ones in a shop here (Wild and Wooly Yarns in Devonport, Auckland, NZ, I think). The Bryspuns seem to be quite popular actually.

The plastic ones that I like are Bryspun. They have a concave point which makes them easier to get into the stitches to do k2tog and such. I knit too tight, so that has been a problem for me.

I googled Bryspun needles and found an ebay store. It's in the US, though, so I'm sure shipping wouldn't be cheap.

Lion Brand makes plastic double point needles.

Here's a link to the LionBrand ones: http://cache.lionbrand.com/hooksAndNeedles.html. They're about half-way down the page. Unfortunately, they only ship to the US and Canada.  Sad

I like to do personal swaps now and again.

I knit, crochet, and make stitch markers.

Just pm me if you wanna swap. Smiley

Thanks guys!  Grin

I have a friend in San Francisco who will let me ship to her, and she comes over 3-4 times a year, so US only shipping is fine Smiley

And similarly, I have a friend in Australia who will act as a shipping/despatch point for me

We all act as stash enhancers for each other, our SOs hate us for it  Grin
