Roxy sure looks cozy in the sweater; I'll bet she just loves to keep toasty-warm on cool days.
Woodi, those needles are 12" tip to tip. The actual needle part before the cable is about 2-1/2" They are made by Addi, so they're more slippery than usual, which added to the hand strain in small quarters. If I were to re-purchase short cabled needles I think I'd try bamboo. I use these little ones for armholes when I do baby wear.
