I've never heard of needles other than DPNs smaller than that, but they may be out there. You could always make your own, too.

There's some kid's needles available at Joanns and maybe Michael's that are about 7 or 8" long.

Picked up a "kids" 7" straight at Jo-anns, works great... I am doing a """Teddy Bear" (saw it on Knitty Gritty...love that show) anyway you use a 7" but you only cast on 20sts...so my 7 inchers were waaaay to long and my circ didn't work either....You do the entire bear on one needle. I think it's gonna be cute!!!!!!!Thanks again Have fun today. Chele
