I'm having problems with my ballwinder. I am using it correctly and it has worked fine in the past. However, instead of winding the wool in a criss cross way as it should, it is just winding round…Continue

I though Hiya Hiya used to have down to 5 or 6 aught, but when I went to their site I didn't see anything lower than 0. Maybe it is another brand I'm thinking of. I'll have to see if my brain can come up with another brand with stainless steel needles.

Thanks, Jo!

You definitely do NOT want wood.  They would be much too fine and would break so easily.  I got a set of needles down to size 00000 from Scotty Maloney online.  Mine are 8" straights.  I think the set cost somewhere around $20.

Glad to see you were taken care of. I'm starting a discussion on the topic, so maybe we'll get some more replies.

Do you want metal or wood? DPN or circs? I don't think KP sells anything less that 0s. I do know that Webs carries the Karbonz DPNs and they do have 00 and 000 in both the 6" and 8"

Where is the best place get 00 and 000 size needless?

Pam, like Peggy, I have not tried this pattern and I do not have it in my pattern library, but I'm sure we can try to help. I noticed on your home page that you said you are a fairly new knitter and may have jumped into a few patterns that are over your head. Note that is the only way to learn. So like Peggy said, go up to the list of discussion and at the bottom of the list you will find "Add a Discussion". Just remember to post only specific questions and not the whole pattern, because of the copyright laws.

I found this on Ravelry:

I haven't made it myself, and I don't have the pattern, but if you post specific questions, the Fairy Godknitters will try to help. How about starting a discussion on the topic?

I am having trouble with a pattern I recently purchased titled the corner to corner wrap from Work Shelter. In fact, I've taken it apart and started over so many times I'm thinking of putting it away for awhile! Has anyone done this wrap? And could I send you specific questions? Thanks. Pam

Thank you for the suggestion. I am new to the community, so all the features are confusing.The idea that I can have a blog here is amazing.
