Size 50 - Source
Hi

A super source for quality needles is www.jenkinswoodworking.com

I purchased a set of Size 50 circulars to make larger knitted afgahns/throws. Just started using mine last night, wow, so much easier than the Speed Stix!!

If you want longer straights in size 50 they are available, my LYS sells them. They have a website http://www.yarnandfiber.com/catalog/...?cPath=344_989. I don't know if they would be worth the price to me, but I'll put it out there for those who are interested.

Dang! How could you even sit down and knit with those? They're MONSTERS!

Cool, though--if they weren't so expensive I'd be tempted to get some for a friend as a gag knitting gift, then tell her I expect her to make something for me on them!

I have a pair of size 50's from Lion Brand and a pair of size 50 circs from Jensen's Woodworking. The circs are so much easier to use, especially when I'm using 4 strands at once with 50 sts cast on.

They're fun to use and I can finish an afghan really quickly.

Those are great needles! Thanks for the link. I haven't knitted anything with this size of needle yet, at least I'll know where I can purchase a circular and avoid the pitfalls of falling stitches.

Here's a link to Mr. Jenkins website:

http://www.yarntools.com/knitting-needles.html

He hand makes his needles and they're sooooo smooth. I've used both the Speed Stix and the circs and I'm so glad I invested in the circs. They're much easier to use when you don't have to worry about stitches jumping off the ends.
