    Wooden or bamboo double points don't crawl out of your work as badly as others.

    Really? That's good to know, thanks! I've been wanting to use them, but they're rather intimidating. Have seen those new "V" shaped knitting needles on Amazon and have thought about trying those for socks, hats and such. Have you tried them yet? They're pretty pricey, so I don't know if I'll get them. (I haven't knitted socks or a hat yet, so might try using the plain ol' DPNs first, then maybe splurge for the VPNs (LOL!) later...)
    Treat each day as one of limitless potential and promise.

    The challenge in life is for HOPE to overcome that sense of fear. For GOOD to overcome evil.

    Deb, I guess I missed the V ones. If you try them let us know how it goes.

    Knitpicks has a wide variety of straights and circulars. I like their short circulars for hats, cowls and anything that other circulars are too long for. They have them in laminated birch and a variety of colors. I like the sunstruck, but the short ones only come in one color. These are the tips and they have the 16" cables, too. http://www.knitpicks.com/needles/Cas...CShortTip.html

    For straight needles my favorite needles are Brittany. Be sure to check your gauge carefully, it varies with different needles and straight or circular knitting.
