Chickadee is a little darling—soft, plump, springy, and eager to loop into intricate color patterns or delicate textures. Its three plies, spun from softest American wool, are twisted together firmly enough
to be sturdy, yet gently enough to be soft and cushiony.  41 beautiful colors to choose from and at just a little over $7 per 181 yd/50g skeins…you will find Chickadee a great value for your sport weight knitting.

I wonder how many needles that Chinese website will sell over the next week. I know I have an order coming and it includes some funky crochet hooks too.

I ordered a set too, I ordered the wooden ones about 7 years ago and found they were nice for a while but I eventually broke a lot of cords mid project they just wear out but for 7$ you can't really complain, I did have to smooth some of the wooden ones with fine sandpaper but over all they were good for a small project. So I am excited to see what the metal ones will be like. You guys are too funny and informative too. I just started listening about a month ago and have really been enjoying your podcast...I really like the music you play it reminds me of a children's program from when I was young "The Friendly Giant", there was a cat and a giraffe too and they played recorders and flutes I think. I am off to youtube to see if I can find it!

I too jumped on the needle bandwagon- bought the stainless steel set and the wooden set. (could never find small enough wood needles for magic loop socks) Also, I purchased a drinking cup similar to the one you described at TJ Maxx.

Thanks for the needle info-ordered 5 sets-all for less than $40-- with postage-found 24" and 48" stainless needles listed on site.

Would love to hear about other needles and hooks sold there-almost purchased the latch hooks for knitting repair but couldn't tell the size.

Just wanted to leave a message and tell you I enjoy you podcast so very much. As I walk in the mornings, I listen. Your voice is so...pleasant and the information is practical. Thank you and keep up the good work.

I laughed so hard slippers? for a human? reply. It's a good thing I was in a room by myself because trying to explain that to my family would have been difficult. It was truly one of those "you have to have been there" moments.
