Yes, I'm living the Halloween to Holiday shift all over again, thinking of Easter before we've even had Valentine's Day. But check out this bunny pattern!

They remind me of some sort of bunny I had when I was little. I want some.

I also want 8" double pointed needles in wood in sizes smaller than 3.5 cm, which is what I was looking for when I found them. I just have to accept that my head is 21.5" inches in diameter, not 24" like my many and expensive circular needles. As it was I spent 4 hours yesterday reknitting the ribbing of a top-down hat trying to get it small enough not to look like I'd left an unlined mixer cover on my head.

Looks like my only option is Brittany Birch (which is far from a bad option, but a little too non-slip and blunt-nosed for me to want to buy them in every size.) Any other suggestions?

Go to Knitpicks and look at the Harmony wood needles - I have them in straight, DPNs and circular. They're excellent for socks, shawls,everything!

I love those needles! but the 8-inchers don't come any smaller than 3.5mm :^( I guess I could double up on 6" sets?

Crystal Palace do 'em in bamboo - look at, for starters.
