I snagged 4 sets of HiyaHiya circs at my LYS last week...they are the darlingest things!

They are 9" circs in US sizes 5, 6, 7, & 8!

They are available in smaller needle sizes in 9-inchers...but I don't usually knit with 0-4's.

Wheeee! The cables have a nice pliablity...and the tips are shorties so that the reach-around to knit in-the-round isn't impossible or a PITA.

I love them! I've heard some sock knitters say they can begin and end a sock from toe to cuff on the same 9" HiyaHiya circ!
They think that is a real PLUS.

I wouldn't know. I am outside the sock world, looking in!
Yeah...with my nose pressed against the glass, getting up the courage to walk in!

I bought my little itty bitty HiyaHiya 9" circs for the final rows of hats! TeeHee! Anything to avoid dpn's!

Well now, Cat Bordhi's YOUTUBE video for knitting in the round on 2 circs has given me more backup plans for small in-the-round knitting!

I think HiyaHiya's are a good investment, one that won't be regretted.
