Maybe a dumb question, but I'll ask anyway. You know how
I've misplaced my knitting needle "sizer" that tells me the size of my
circular needles, so I don't know what pkg they go in.

Is there a site that has a (( sketch )) of the different size needles that I lay my needle on OR punch holes holes in so I'll know the size?? The last thing I knitted I checked my gauge and was lucky.

Thanks for reading,
Ann

Nothing inscribed on my Addi Turbo circ's and that's what
most of my needles are. Same with my DPN's.

However, the good news is that I just purchased the Web bamboo interchangeable set and I believe the size is inscribed on them.

Check the cord on the Addi circs. They have some teeny tiny writing on them.

ann I wish I had a scanner - in the book "The Step by Step Needlcraft Encyclopedia" by Judy Brittain there is a diagram wherein you can place your needle over it and tell what size it is...I'll try to scan it somehow (I'm on vacation htis week or I would use the one at work - sorry!)
