I had hoped the needles themselves would be marked with their size, but they aren't. I guess ill have to write on the nifty little bag they come with. My hubby tells me to just leave them on the card. Dont know what imma do yet.

I use DPN's sometimes as straights cuz they are shorter and dont bump into the sides of my chair, causing more reason to eat chocolate. lol
I just keep a needle sizer in the bag with my tips - it's tied to the zipper so I don't accidentally leave it out (which I'm SOOOO prone to doing).

I have the needle stand but my house is in such disarray right now (we're planning a big move... hopefully soon) that I don't trust myself to use it without someone knocking it over and having all my tips fall out.

Hey. My needles are marked on the part where the cable is joined to them. It's not VERY visible, but when you need to know what needle size it is, it can be helpful.

I have a set of old Aero Bernat straights in 10" length. And those even seem too long for me. I can't imagine ever using all the 14" straights I have. I should probably donate them to a charity knitting group.

I agree, I can't even use 10" needles anymore. The short needles on circs are just the right size for my hands.

I have some straights, but I never use them. For scarves and small projects, the 16" circs are great. You'll love them N00b.

I just bought a needle case (which I love) and keep the needle sizer in my bag, too.

Can't he just mail them to you? Should only take a week at most.

Would defeat the purpose of not paying for shipping, ie: it would cost him $ to mail them to me.

If I wasn't so impatient, I'd tell him just to hang on to them, since I'm moving there beginning of Sept.

Well yes, there would be postage, but probably only a couple bucks..? I'm sure you could make it up to him somehow....
