Needle Inventory

I finally got around to doing an inventory of my Circular Needles. I didn't realize how many US1 needles I had! Looks like I could really use a US9 needle. The reason for so many duplicate sizes is that I need pairs of circs for knitting in the round (hats, socks), and I always have needles in use stuck on WIPs. Here's an enumeration of my Circular Needle collection (sorry, I can't figuure out how to get it to line up):

US Size mm Size Length inch Length cm
0 2 (1 of 2) 40 100

Wow, you have a lot of needles!! I've gotten to the point that i'll just buy the longest circ there is and use it for everything that size. Needles are so pricey!!!

(ps your flower basket shawl is looking so pretty! That's such a fabulous knit!)
