16" Size 8 Circular Bamboo Needles
I've noticed that a few of the larger Wal-Mart stores near me have started carrying these needles. They seem to be of good quality and I paid $2.44 for a pair. I wish they had them in other sizes though. Just thought I'd let you all know.

I'm a needle snob and will only use Knit Picks circulars now. I like the thin flexible cables. I bought some 29" boyles and had to take them back cause I didnt like the cable.

The regular boye cords are fine, they're what I'm used to I have some interchangeable cords and tips, including the 9, but it's too awkward for knitting straight and it's mostly because of the join at the ends of the cord. They work fine for hats though.
