Heh, anything smaller than an 8 is tiny. And 8s aren't very big either....

and to me anything larger than a US7 is HUGE and hard to manage.

My hands bother me if I use anything smaller for any length of time.

Uh oh, I just ordered 1's for some socks I want to make! I'm making some on 3's right now... hopefully the 1's won't be too tiny! I'm kind of in the 'anything smaller than 8 is too small' camp usually.

I have just started some cabled socks on size 1 dpns and find I have to move my hands back and forth to find where my eyes can focus and I can see what I'm doing. Aside from that I am finding them fun and I like the fine stitching, it's lovely.
