I recently finished knitting a pair of socks with size 2 needles. When I finished knitting, I set the needles aside, and thought, "Oh my gosh....were those size 4??" Then, I checked them with my needle gauge, and they were size 2. I guess they looked larger without the stitches on them. :teehee:
When you keep knitting with the small needles, they don't feel so small anymore. Your hands get used to them.
Oh, by the way, you guys are gonna freak when you hear this. I actually have some size 000000 needles. :shock: I bought them in case I decide to make anything from my "Mini Knits" book.
