8 inch circular knitting needles
 
Does one know where I can purchase 8 inch circular knitting needles? Please help I have looked everywhere. :??

I didn't even know anyone made 8 inch ones. The smallest I've ever seen is 16.

Could you use DPNs?

Sorry, I purchased mine at a local yarn shop and they don't have an online ordering system yet. Have you tried any LYS yet? They might be able to special order one if you have the need.

somebody did make them but they were essentially kind of a stretchy circ if i remember right. i just can't remember off the top of my head who it is... :??

I did a search and found these;
Clover bamboo 8 in circs

Takumi made some kind of all plastic one. Don't think I'd ever use one smaller than a 16", though.

Addi Turbo makes 12 inch circs....and they are very difficult to work with. I found it hard to purl and decrease with them.

I have a pair, don't know what I did with them actually. They were really uncomfortable for me to use.
