I've bought 6 sets of addis from Brambles Crafts and Classic Yarns on ebay. She's out of the UK and I've recieved my needles faster than some stuff from the US! Her prices are great too, even with the exchange, it's still half the price that it is here. She also has some lovely yarn and other little doo-dads that are great prices.

But isn't that just too wide a diameter for socks? I can see using a 16" for hats, I've done that. So when you said you were using a circ for socks, you meant magic loop?

I thought I mentioned that, sorry! Yes, I used magic loop and it worked great. Two circs work well, too and they can be any length as long as the needles are the same size.

I need to learn that...I've only tried it once (with one needle and a long cord) and my experience was not a good one...

After reading about Jeff's, I scurried over to Ebay and bought 2 pair of 24" #2s. I love these for socks (usually use #0 or #1). But you never know what you are going to need, right?!
They have been shipped, so I am anxiously awaiting their arrival. :sunny:

ONE needle?? How does that work? Believe me..it works much better with two needles on one circ.

BTW...I have been using magic loop when the top of a hat gets too small for the 16 inch, too. Works great!

Not one needle literally; I just meant I was using one circular needle and a long cord--there were two tips! :rofling: :rofling: :rofling: I'll bet you were thinking "um, no wonder it didn't work, daft woman!"
