Help with knitting needles
My house burned down in May 2016. It was a total loss and I am still filling out insurance claim forms. About 3 or 4 years ago I bought some needlework stuff off of Craig's list and it included 2 real treasures - There was a set of 14" Bernat Aero straight needles, sizes 1 - 13 in a beautiful zippered case and a set of 8" or 10" straights in a tan zippered case. I have found some of these sets on ebay and they are in dreadful shape. Mine were in mint condition and looked new. I am desperate to put a value on these for the insurance company. I'm also looking for dates to know if mine were vintage or not. I believe Aero is still available in England but I'm not sure. Any help will be greatly appreciated, especially if they are a more valuable vintage item. Thank you.

I'm stuck on row 3: p3,* p2tog,p11,p2tog-b; rep from*, to end p1. What I don't know is how to do p2tog-b? There is no instruction how to do p2tog-b. Any help is greatly appreciated. Thanks so much in advance.
Interchangeable needle tip sets with swivel joints
Hi Needlers! I have missed you! I just saw some extraordinary work in the recent pictures and I applaud you! But to my question: Long time ago we were discussing interchangeable needles and someone mentioned a brand that had swivels built in the tips. I hope someone can tell me that brand now. I had carefully saved that info on the computer that totally crashed. I think the swivel tips would really help me out. If anyone has an opinion about those swivels, positive or negative, would appreciate knowing that, too.
My first 1898 hat (you all helped!)
I had questions about my 1898 hat. I tried it on my BIL and it was too short. (I hadnât done all the length before I decreased for the top)
I frogged it back and knitted it per the pattern. It fit my brother! Success!
My brother’s hat
I decided to use Elizabeth Zimmerman's Sewn Bind Off to finish my aock. Thanks for all of the input. I now have many different bindoffs to try. Here is the finiished sock. There are many mistakes, but I am learning. I hope that the next one is better. I think I will try a different bind off for the other sock.

Need Addi Replacement Needle
I need to replace a Addi interchangeable long lace needle. I want to buy a set of 4.0 mm (US 6). Can you advise me of an online company that would be good to deal for this matter.
I am knitting a “slouchy” hat for a granddaughter and I am at the decrease. Using a size 6 circular for the body and pattern is changing to dp's for the decrease, also size 6. I don’t have size 6 dp’s but have 7. So you think I could get away with using the 7’s for the four row only decrease, or shouldI bite the bullet and go buy the size 6? I try not to ever use dp’s, so I really hate investing in them, but ———- Welcome your thoughts, thanks
