Where can I find knitting kits?
I recently received a little windfall and I'd like to buy a knitting kit. I'm looking for plus size sweaters or something "special". Any one know of any sites with kits? So far this is what I'm thinking of ordering.

Also is there a interchangeable set that has needles smaller than size 5 ??? I have the Denise set and I love them but I want even smaller needles. Do they make such a thing?

I have no idea where to find good patterns - I think teh one you've found is GORGEOUS !!!

As for interchangeables, I have the dreaded Boye set and that starts with size 1 needles. Not many people on this board like them, but I find for the projects I do (I would not even attempt your sweater) they work wonderfully.

Best of Luck and Happy Knitting

I too have the Boye set.... AND I LOVE THEM!!!!!! I haven't had any problems with them. (A few times the needles have started to come unscrewed but that was my fault cuz I didn't tighten them like I should.... :rollseyes:) And like vaknitter said they go down to size one...

Ingrid, the link has two sets of http, so it will not work, you might want to fix it.
