Rosemary--you have given such a gift to knitters! I can imagine how long this blog entry must have taken to photograph and write. It's so clear and well-written; great photos, and easy to understand. Thank you for taking the time to teach us this. Such a generous gift!

Wow...there are no words to describe how thankful Iam.
Here in Mexico we have only 3.5mm, 4mm, and 4.5 mm circular needles that are all 80 cms long ( I think that's 32 inches...).
Your wonderful tutorial gives me a chance to make the circulars I need.
I appreciate the time and effort it took you to come upwith such an easy to understand tutorial.
I am waiting for more ....
Thank you again.....

Wow! Thank you, this is great! I was referred to it because my rabbit chewed through a cord on a new set of interchangeable needles I just bought and your plumber's tape method should work very well for repairing it. But I love the whole thing and, with your permission, would like to incorporate it into some of my knitting classes.

I have made straight needles for years to give to children. At last I can offer them circulars. Free! Not only are they safer than longer pointy sticks, they are much less likely to break and/or lose their mate.

Thank you for your generosity in sharing your experience and expertise with us. I believe you've revolutionized the industry.

I found your article @ Knitters Review. Look forward to frequenting your blog for inspiration.

Best,
