I was looking at ebay and they had some really good deals on knitting needles. I bid on some but was outbid last night. So this morning I happened to drive by a thrift shop and decided to stop in. I bought six pairs of 13" needles, one crochet hook, four stitch holders, and some stitch markers for under $10!!! I now have needles in size 2,3,4,5,6,8,9,10, 10 1/2, 11, and 13! I just started knitting but it is so nice to have the needles for such a good price and not have to pay over $3 a pair at JoAnnes or Michaels.

Cool. What kind of needles are they? Straights or circulars, metal, plastic or wood?

straights, the size 13 are plastic, the rest are metal. :)

Great score....almost all of my straight needle collection is from our nearby thrift store and I find alot of lace weight cone yarn there as well. Some of them have the original packaging and price labels are like $1.10! Imagine that! Knitters come and go, I guess!
