If someone out there has a set of 35 or 50 needles, would you put a tape measure around 'em & let me know the circumference? I'd appreciate it.

US35 is 20mm around, and US50 is 25mm

Ok, if that's so, then has *anyone* ever heard of a knitting needle that's TWO AND A HALF INCHES (63.5 MM) around???

What size would that be??? (besides huge, that is...)

Good question, as sometimes I wonder what the rhyme or reason is to the jump in mm's between one size and the next...sometimes one US size to another is only one or two but the mm's can be 5 or more...
wacky.
nuthin' like knitting with table legs eh? :shock: :roflhard:
