Good Tuesday Morning All.

I want some Hiya Hiya fixed needles. I have decided on fixed as I have not used them and thought I should try them before buying a set.

I have only found a couple sites that have them in stock and carry fixed. Just wondering where those who have them have bought them.

Flannelberry has them in stock and cheapest, but I have not heard anyone mention them.

Ebay also have them cheap, I have never bought form Ebay

Knit bin and the Hiya Hiya site have them in stock.

Any help would be welcome and appreciated.

I have recently received the Hiya Hiya sharp circulars as a present of a very sweet lady here in our group of knitters and I must say I am VERY HAPPY with them!

They are much better than the German ones I had before.
I would recommend them, but cannot tell you where to buy them from since I received them as a present.

Happy knitting!

So I think that I should get 24", I do plan on doing some baby blankets but think you can squish the stitches on the needle or should I get 32"?

But if you can use two needles to work in the round then you don't have to worry about them being short enough?

Just purchased my second pair of Hiya Hiya sharps. I love them. Ordered online from Paradise Fibers (www.paradisefibers.com) and received them promptly and they enclosed a "free shipping" coupon for use on a future order. I bought us9-32 inch for my particular project but they had all sizes.

Thanks for this info. I found a shop only 10 miles from me carries them.
One reason I like to purchase needles at a local yarn shop is that most of the time they will have different needles available for you to try. I had heard so much about the different square DPN. I was visiting a LYS and they happened to have some on a sock that was started just for the purpose of trying out the difference between traditional round size 2US vs the square size 2US needles. If I hadn't just purchased $70 in wool before I saw the needles I would have probably bought them instead of the wool, but I had just spent my budget for the week on the wool.
