**Taken**To Give Away to a new knitter: 5 & 6mm circulars
I have two circular needles to give away, that were given to me, but I got a set of interchangables for Christmas.

I don't know the brand name, they weren't packaged. The needles are aluminum/metal. The cables are very thin, see-through plastic, very flexible. They're both around 30" tip-to-tip. Size 5mm & 6mm.

I'd like to give them away to a new knitter... preferably someone who hasn't tried knitting with circulars yet but would like to, and maybe just doesn't have the extra $$ floating around to buy new needles at the moment.

First person to post that they want them can have them. If you're the first to reply, just pm me your mailing information. I'll pay shipping in Canada or to the US. Thanks!

Hi there,

You are very kind! If the offer still stands, I would love them. I've read the metal needles are the best to learn on! I would be willing to trade them for some yarn if you would like. I could send you something you've been looking for, or just a surprise color. Let me know!

couture... I replied to your pm before I read this. They're yours I don't need anything in trade, though it's sweet of you to offer. I didn't pay anything for the needles, and it'll only cost a couple dollars to mail, so no worries

I just wanted to say that is so nice of you!

I only had one pair of needles but my grandma kindly donated two pairs to me this xmas, you have inspired me to give mine away when I o longer need them.
