View Full Version : DPN's... Please Help

01-02-2007, 03:33 PM
I've been trawling market stalls all over England on my yearly Christmas Trip to visit friends to find some Double Pointed Needles, to no avail.

Today, a nice lady told me that they are not made anymore!!!

Is this true?

Is there a secret stash of them somewhere that I can buy them from!

that's not true! DPNs are alive and well...someone posted recently that they had found a good assortment available on Ebay. seems like craft stores and such should have them too.

Not made anymore? What planet was she from????? :??

Here's some links, plus you should be able to pick them up at any Michaels, Joanns, LYS.......

Knitpicks (http://www.knitpicks.com/needles/needles_list.aspx?dgroups='kpdpn'&pid=2&kid=653&media=GGL000240)
Yarn Market - Crystal Palace DPNs (https://www.yarnmarket.com/yarn/Crystal_Palace_Knitting_Needles-Crystal_Palace_Double_Pointed_Needles-448.html) They have others, too.
Yarn store (http://www.yarn-store.com/double-point-knitting-needles.html)

Google search on double pointed needles..the list is endless.

I'm not sure what planet she was from - definately a grumpy one!

Its sooooo hard to find good knitting/craft shops in this part of the world - my local craft shops doesn't sell knitting needles because "if we did people would expect us to know how to use them"!!!!

Scary :pout:

Ooops! :oops: Didn't notice where you were from! If you can't find a store with them then you could order them. ;)

One of those websites ships internationally - I think its gonna be quicker to get a sheep to bring them from the US on foot than to order them in the UK!

Thank you all!
