i didn't know you could get a needle sizer. wow how sensible. i will definatly be investing in one of those as well. especailly now i have descovered a knitting shop only 30 mins from my house. makes it easier when you can see what you are buying and ask advise etc.
i think that the needles ihave will be to big, they feel about 4mm, so i guess to large for what i will want. but hey i'm guessing, what do i know about knitting socks lol
thanks again, i really do appreciate it
