60" bamboo circular needles... Is there such a thing?
Hey All,
Don't know if this is the correct place to post. But I am need of 60" bamboo circular needles in a size 10. Is there such a thing? Takumi/Clover only goes up to 32" the Takumi Velvet goes up to 29". I have the Addi Natura's in a 40"/60cm.
But now I am looking for 60" bamboo circs. Does anyone out there know of a brand or store that has such a thing? I just don't like metal needles and I am afraid that the project that I am knitting with will come out different if I change to metal. grrrr..
And, I am soooooooooooooo"Googled" out. LOL
Thanks for your help!

They're an off brand but should work just fine!

Knitpicks has interchangeable cords that go up to 60". since you don't like metal needles, you can get the harmony wood ones.

Thanks Mary, and I even looked at e-bay! And you of all people know what I need it for. (just didn't want to fiddle with more needles!)

OOPS, forgot about the harmonies! I haven't bought the 60" off brand but have considered it.

I have purchased sets from a seller in Indiana in 16", 24", 32" and 40" all for under $40. And I got a set of the DPNs. It's a fantastic deal if you have a budget or change sizes alot. The only down side I've seen is that the cords are thicker than the Brand names.

Great advice as always. I am loving the addi natura's. They are a little steep in price, but they are really easy to knit with and the cord is the same as their addi turbos.
The Clover/Takumi Velvet are the best in bamboo. In DPN's and also single pointed needles. They are better than the regular Clover brand. The yarn just slides off the needles, but still has a better grip and not as slippery as metal. I have a few in circs, and they do pretty good. The cord isn't as thin as the Addi's but do work pretty well.
