plastic needles

Posted by foggyj (My Page) on

Can someone tell me of a source where I could find plastic circular knitting needles? I like to use them, and the particular pattern I'm doing now contains alot of increases. I don't have the size needle required.
The plastic needles are flexible, which makes doing those stitches much easier. I've been to all the craft stores, and gone on-line to the knitting supply sites. Are plastic needles just not very common, or are they not making them anymore?

Thank you. I did the same, and looked through a lot. I bought a three different type needle-set, from Knit Pics. I'll try to find a size 9-plastic circular next.

RE: plastic needles

You're lucky. I haven't seen any in our nearest WalMart. I'll try again. I like needles that are more pointed, as opposed to blunter ends.
