Heh, anything smaller than an 8 is tiny. And 8s aren't very big either....

and to me anything larger than a US7 is HUGE and hard to manage.

My hands bother me if I use anything smaller for any length of time.

Uh oh, I just ordered 1's for some socks I want to make! I'm making some on 3's right now... hopefully the 1's won't be too tiny! I'm kind of in the 'anything smaller than 8 is too small' camp usually.

I have just started some cabled socks on size 1 dpns and find I have to move my hands back and forth to find where my eyes can focus and I can see what I'm doing. Aside from that I am finding them fun and I like the fine stitching, it's lovely.

I'm one of those crazies who doesn't like working on anything much bigger than a 4. The scarf I'm knitting on 11s now is driving me nuts. The needles are just too big, it feels weird. I can't wait to finish my Christmas knitting so I can switch back to my 3s and make armwarmers for my ex.

I asked for sock yarn and a set of two circs in each size 0-3 for christmas.

Brandy, that was my reaction as well! (I got a set too, though I haven't tried them out yet.)

That sock yarn seems so skimpy, too . . . . .

What are you making?

I like anything from 000 - ~7mm. Much bigger and it's clunky, to me, but for the most part, I just <3 knitting. ^_^
