There are also 11" stretchy circulars for sock knitting. http://www.stretchycirculars.com/index.html , and you can also use a 12" circ. the 12" circ can be difficult to get your stitches around for the first few rows, but it works fine for the rest of your sock. using any of these last 3, you will either need another circ or dpn's for closing the toe.
Have you ever used the stretchy circulars? If so, what did you think of it?

Thanks.
