I've been wanting to learn how to knit socks using 2 circs and magic loop, but I've been hesitating to buy new needles in case I decide that I don't like those techniques. Is anyone interested in selling their used circs?

TIA!

Are you selling them? What sizes and lengths do you have?

New ones aren't expensive at Knitpicks and really shipping isn't that bad if you don't want to spend enough to get it free. I have enough for two circs of most sizes now and lots of cables. Not for sale though... I will NEVER sell my Options. ;)

I'm in Canada, so shipping is a bit more. I guess I hesitate to buy online just cuz I'm one of those types of shoppers who likes to inspect (ie. look at carefully, touch) before I buy.

I've on a bit of a "yarn tour" these past few days while in Vancouver and one of the lys recommended I try the Hiya Hiya needles. The sales lady told me they were comparable to Addi's but half the price. I haven't tried them yet, but I will report back when I do.

I looked at Hiyas last weekend. THere was something I didn't like about them but I can't remember what. It was either the point or the cable. I bought an Addi.
