I'm having a hard time finding needles size 1 and below. Does anyone know of online sites that would have these? Also in your experience, what kind of needles are best in this size? I have some bamboo size 1 and have broken them after a few times using them. Thanks for any info.

Are you looking for straights, DPN or circulars? There are many choices depending on what you are wanting ....

Addis makes circulars in some of those sizes and also DPNs.

Sorry, I'm looking for double points. I didn't know Addi made double point needles. I'll look for them. I've used jkl needles in the past, but I've heard some people have had problems getting their items in a timely manner. Thanks for the info.

Susan Bates makes a set of sock needles that are aluminum, but come is sizes 000, 00, 0 and 1. Five of each in the set. They're $10 at JoAnn's, but with the 40% coupons, it's quite a bargain.

I tried to order a size 0 long circ from JKL Needles not too long ago, and they were out. It also took them a long time to tell me they were out of them. I was disappointed, so I turned to Elann. Of course, Elann had the needle and the shipping was fast. I'm always glad when I order from them.

Another great place to find smaller needles is Lacis.com which is Berkeley, CA. They have a wonderful selection, but their online catalog is hard to navigate. It's best to call them.

Lacis sells tiny lace needles and they have really good customer service. I think it's www.lacis.com
