I don't know, but this is bothering: Every pattern has a different needle size. What do I do?

Many of us have interchangeable needles to solve that problem. There is a thread at the top of the forum about them. If can't afford them or don't want to then the only solution is to buy them as you need them. ;)
Here are some links to two threads about needles.

I bought needles virtually every pay day for the 2 yrs I've been knitting until I got all of the sizes that I wanted. Then, my husband surprised me with a set of Denises one day.....I continued to collect needles....then I got the KnitPick Options set....I will continue to collect needles.....it's a sickness..part of my knitting addiction :blush:

I know the feeling - fortunately, there's always charity shops here that sell second-hand needles and my particular favourite are old Aero ones. The points are extremely well-tapered (like the green ones on Amy's videos).
If you don't want to keep paying full price, perhaps checkout your e.bay site - where you can pick up some real bargains.

I had lots of different needles and still needed more :( with each pattern I wanted to make. Then I got some extra $$$ and I treated myself to the Denise Interchangeable set and :inlove: I LOVE them. I haven't had to buy any more sizes yet. They are wonderful to work with. :D
