I just said I was going to do me time knitting but I have been trying to sneak in a project for one of my sons. I found an old knitted vest pattern. It has all the pockets especiallly for a pocket watch. Really planning in advance for the next Christmas. The pattern calls for two size number 8 and 11 Beehive needles. This really dates the pattern but it is just what he wants. So the question is what size needles from the US are equivalent to the size 8 and 11 Beehive needles?
