Aha! Thanks for the <muttered> warning.
So I want a size 1, probably.
I's swatching with a 16" needle but will need a
24" for the body.
Would you be able to bring size 0 or 1 or 2 in
whatever you have?
(I'm doing a circular swatch by knitting over,
sliding the stitches back to the beginning of the swatch and
letting the yarn drape loosely behind the swatch. This gives me
knit-only on a small swatch.

Keep in mind that some brands
(cough<Knitpicks>cough) have higher tolerance in their
sizesâ€”meaning that one size six needle might not be the exact
same diameter as another size six.
Iâ€™ve never stressed about needle sizes, because
the gauge you get with the project yarn determines the outcome.
Iâ€™ve got Knitpicks and Hiya Hiya interchangeables,
but now prefer Chiaogoo fixed circulars (red lace) because of
the join and the cable. Handsome Fibers
has good service
and super-fast shipping, and they typically have a percent-off
discount under Coupons

On Saturday, I'm
going to need advice on circular needles to buy.
Does anyone have a needle gauge that is precise?
Mine is an old metal Boye(?), and my Knitpicks
needle points are too large for one size and too
small for the next one.
Also, I'll be
asking for suggestions on what brand to get.
Thanks in advance,
