12" Size 10 Circulars anywhere?
I'm pretty new to knitting in the round. But because I'm a tight knitter, my gauge requires that I knit with size 10 circulars for my son's longies (little pants) pattern. That's been fine with 16" circulars for the body, but now for each leg, I need to move to 12" circulars for the legs. Are there any brands that make 12" circulars in size 10? I noticed Addi makes size 9 circulars in 12". Any other suggestions? I'd rather not use double-pointed needles for both legs. I can do the double-pointeds, but I think they're pretty annoying.
Can someone help me? Please! Thanks!

Try using LONGER needles (circular) and do magic loop. It's REALLY easy! Go to the advanced techniques (It's really not advanced!) for a video.

Yes, if you have a set of long circular needles then you can make anything. I only ever buy the 29" circular needles (that's all they currently sell at my wal-mart) and when i need 16" ones, i just use magic loop.
I prefer circular needles for all of my projects because they are so versitile and easy to use.
