I'm using the bamboo ones from Crystal Palace which I do not like because of the joints.

Thanks.

2.75mm is a common size throughout the world, check some online stores. Be careful if you are swapping needles mid project to ensure the old and new are sized correctly. I have heard that US needles can be a bit hit and miss on sizing.

Aero and Inox. I just bought a 2.75 mm Inox a month or so ago because I couldn't get gauge on my supposedly size 2 Addi's, which are really 3 mm.

Anyway, both of these brands do come in 2.75 mm, the joins are fairly decent. The cable is a little stiffer on the Aeros, though.

I like the Inox needles. I use them for Magic Loop socks quite often! And not too bad, costwise.

A positive attitude may not solve all your problems, but it will annoy enough people to make it worth the effort.

Hi Wen,

Thanks for the warning. Brittany used to have something about that on its web site and so I've tried to stick to those sold in the metric system.

Amy and Sally (?),

Thanks for the help. Just wondering whether the Inox Express is worth the extra cost?

Thanks.
