I can't even imagine! Smallest I've used is a 16", and at times it seemed like I was wrestling during certain maneuvers. What does one make w/8" circs, and um ... how??

I think it would probably be easier to use either Magic Loop (as I would do) or DPNs, since 8" circs are hard to find and hurt anyway.

the link jan posted above to purl soho is the only place i found them when i was looking and oddly the pattern that called for them was written by the store owner. ;-) I wrote her and asked if i could just use DPNs and she said sure and I did and everything was happy. I can't imagine working with them that small either, I would go with 2-circ, magic loop, etc.

I could swear that Kempy had stretchy circs for sale on Stitch Diva, but I can't find them now.

The smallest I've used is 12 inch, and it really was a pain. The needle tips were too long and the yarn didn't slide verysmoothly (these were addis, so I can only think it was the length that caused the problem).

if i'm not mistaken, those stretchy circs are only available in sock sizes anyway, maybe just even only 2?

the tiny circ ones are SO cool
I do not find them painful to use
when I use magic loop or 2 circs sometimes the needle tips are WAY to big to use comfortably
I use them to make wristers, and the cuffs of my sweater (that I just finished and posted pics about <--- see shameless PLUG
I really like them
I just wish they came in more sizes

I believe my tiny circs are Addis. I forgot to look. Funny, I purchased them specifically for a pattern, never made it and can't for the life of me remember what pattern it was. So, if I can find the needles, I might be willing to sell/trade/give them to you.

( inch knitting needles
Just found 8" and 9" circular needles at Patternworks web site. Addi, HiyaHiya and KA Bamboo are available. Love these things for socks and mittens, (have 4 small grandchildren who spend the winter losing mittens faster than I can make them). Hope this helps...
