Has anyone tried these Comfort Zone Needles? http://knittingonthego.samsbiz.com/store/category/9qn2/Comfort_Zone_Double_Pointed_Needles.html

They sound great to me as I have problems with my wrists and currently find old plastic Boye DPNs give me less discomfort than bamboo or metal. I also like that they come in sets of 6 in case you lose one.

I've mailed to ask if they make sizes smaller than US #3 as I usually knit socks on size #0 or 1.

I've tried these and I like them very much. They are really flexible but they knit well. I am currently making a pair of socks from Cascade Fixation on them. They don't come smaller than #3 right now. It is really hard to make smaller sizes in plastic needles but I heard they are trying.

...as soon as I finish this row

I'm glad to hear you like using them. I got an email back from Katherine which said the manufacturer is working on developing sizes US #1 and #2 at this time and they expect the #1's and #2's to be available within six to eight weeks. She also offered to let me know when they are available and I'm definitely going to order them as soon as I can.

I have some in size 3. I haven't used them yet, but they do feel nice. And they are bright pink, which means they will probably be harder to lose.

Take care!

I like these! Could you tell me how long they are? The website doesn't say what the length is. Thanks!
