Had these made for me, they're 20 mm !! (19 mm is US 35 !)
Having fun trying them out ;)
To compare....the smaller needle on the last pic is 10 mm (US 15)

Wow!!! I might be able to convince myself to start and finish a scarf if I had needles that big! Crazy :o)

Those are not only fat, they are really long! It hurts my hands to knit with big needles..feels like I'm knitting with bats! :lol: I like the fabric though..it's cool!

I've got some 35's but not that long. I've used them a few times and they do help you finish in record time! :) Enjoy!

I had them made this long for me, wanted to make sure I had enough room for the sts on the needle

Oh that's a riot! I have some size US35, too! Big white tubes with pointed tips! Mine are shorter than yours!
Thanks for posting the humorous photos!! I needed a good chuckle.

I love it. The stitches are so big that they look different when I first looked at them. :yay:

And I thought size 17 needles were big, which I'm using to knit a scarf. Yours are true giants!
