  • Longer knitting needles..

    Hi folks,

    Can anyone suggest somewhere (ideally online, as we are stranded on the lovely island of Jersey), I can buy "longer" knitting needles?

    My other half has a set of what I would call "normal" size 4 needles, but she complains they are too short for her to knit properly (she last knitted quite a long time ago, so I suspect the issue is actually that she was just a lot teenier at the time!).

    That said, I am sure I have seen "extra long" needles somewhere - but have no idea where. Any suggestions?

    And while I'm here! Any good links for sites with funky wool/yarn?

    When you say normal how long ? there are scarf needles or ones that are about 12" then circular that are a piece of flexible plastic with points at each end. These come in various lengths
    If it is the 12" ones I have lots of spares.

      You could try Nicki's Knitting and Needlecrafts on ebay. I've used them a few times, good service.
      I think the longest straight needles are 35cm (standard are 30cm) but your OH could try knitting on 2 circular needles, that way she can choose a length to suit her.
