lol This was my first thought, too! You could always use them to make an afghan or a reeeally absorbant dishcloth/bathmat/etc. But, I'm with you, if you're not going to use them very often (or not at all), why spend the $20-30 on them? Just modify the pattern.

I like to do personal swaps now and again.

I knit, crochet, and make stitch markers.

Just pm me if you wanna swap. Smiley

You could also use 25s instead. For the cape you'd have to CO more stitches, but wouldn't be difficult for this pattern. Figure out your sts per inch, then how many inches the CO sts in the pattern makes and multiply your gauges times inches.
Yeah, I was thinking I could adjust for 19s if I couldn't find further use for the really big 'uns. I'm not sure what else I'd do with 25s either to be honest.

That's a cool scarf, atroxsilentium.

I adjusted for the 19s, because I liked the smaller gauge (I think the  Fair Isle version in the photo uses 19s rather than 35s, as it looks more like the kid's version).

Here's what it looked like:

I offered to knit my housemate anything she wanted from Loop-D-Loop and she opted for a pattern that calls for US 36 circulars. As much as I dig owning oddball tools, I'd hope to use a set of $25 needles more than once. Smiley

Any patterns or items that would use needles this size?

I know of a Rowan pattern or two that uses them...

I wouldn't spend $25 on them, though - those would seem like a prime candidate for breaking out some dowels and aquarium tubing and you could make them a lot cheaper!
