I am looking for the PONY brand of knitting needle. I called a local wool shop but they do not have the type I am lookiing for. I have Arthritis in both hands and cannot use steel needles. I was given a pair of #8 and one #10 of this brand. The particular needle I am wanting is clear plastic with glitter throughout they are so comfortable to use. I have contacted Spotlight they only have the plastic coated steel ones. PLease can someone tell me where to go to get a supply of these needles. Thank you so much. Bernie
I have seen them advertised on the net but it is going to be easier to try and get them somewhere here in NZ. Thanks

Hi HIlary long time no see. Yes I rang KW this morsning she has never heard of the type i am looking for. They are so comfortable to use. What is the name of that shop on the one-way North it is down by the Harley Davidson shop ? Perhaps it is worthh looking at them. I will not stop until I find them that is for sure. I rang the ASrthritis office they have not been asked for knitting needles before but did ak that i keep them posted for their future reference. Will catch up later. Cheers Bernie

Hello Bernie01,

Deramores UK have the PONY brand needles and have listed on one and a half pages. I am giving you the link for Australian ourchases, but when you open the link on the upper left hand corner there is a flag with (change) in brackets and click on New Zealand for currency conversion.

Hope this is of some help to you.

Cheers

Hi,
I also have problems with my hands and wrists and have found using steel needles impossible. I have changed over to circular needles for most things and have found the PONY and SWALLOW brands are lovely to use. I think I got the Pony ones from Knitworld in Lower Hutt a few years ago and the Swallow ones I bought at The Wool Company in Utiku. Sometimes if you are really lucky you can find plastic type needles in garage sales or Opportunity shops as I have done.
Good luck
