They are not a named brand, they are sort of home made. There are a few things in the stitch and bitch book that need 16" needles, I'd like to make the loopy stitch cowl scarf/hood. The problem with Knitpicks is that it doesn't take paypal. That's the only way I can pay for things overseas at the moment.
On looking again, they don't look like they'd last long do they?
oh well, back to the drawing board.
