4" or 5" Double Pointed
Hi; Can anyone tell me where I can find 4" or 5" short length double pointed needles ? I've looked everywhere and can't find any. Please help me. There must be others who use them. I do alot of socks, mittens etc. for babies and little children. Thankyou

well if you don't mind wood needles, you could check out, they're about 5" in length.

That which does not kill you, isn't trying hard enough.
