I purchased an odd size (10-75) addi circ at ebay. it was suppose to be a 60 cm circ or about 24 inches. But when I received it from the seller (in Hong Kong) the total length of the circ was about 24 inches or about a 10-12 inch cable. Is this usual for european circulars or is this ebayer scamming me? A 12
inch cable isn't going to do me anygood when I start knitting this man's sweater.

I'm not sure what you mean. For all cable needles, the inches given is the total length, not the length of the cable.

I agree. The length given is generally from needle tip to needle tip.

I'll have to measure these circs I'm using now when I'm done but I am knitting double stranded and have 295 stitches on. Almost no room to spare tho and I lifeline regularly in case the cord breaks.

It could be that the seller (is it Jeff Wonderland?) made a mistake in shipping. I could contact the seller and let him/her know that the addis you received are not the one's that you purchased. Also, the size of the addi needle is stamped (in very tiny print) on the cable.
