Hi, I just purchased 12" circular needle but I ordered US 1, 2.5mm

I didn't realize that Addi did not go by standard US sizes in their smaller needles.

I love the needles but for finger weight yarn their to big. I'm a loose knitter. I know I could double yarn but I don't like doing that.
Do you think if I tried a sport weight if that might work? I don't have any to test myself right at the moment.
I did try worsted weight and as I'm a loose knitter I was able to do this with ribbing but stockinette was uncomfortable.

I figure ideally for finger weight I would use a size 0?
Worsted weight a size 3 or 4?

I wish I could try them at some LYS but the ones I've called don't sell them and would order them for me but only with definite sizes.

If you can help me, I would appreciate it. Thanks
