For all of you who have a hard time finding certain needle sizes, for example, that maddening break between US sizes 10.5 (6.5mm) and 11 (8mm), here is a great resource: www.booksyarnmore.com.
There was a recent thread about suggestions for great wooden needles, and slybella mentioned that she had some from this company. I went to their website and ordered some various in-between sizes that are hard to find. Not only were they friendly and very accomodating, they have no additional charge for custom sizes! They are a bit on the expensive side and only available in straights and dpns, but they will last a life time and are beautiful.
