Lace weight, what size needles?

Do folks usually use for lace weight yarn/lace work knitting?

Well, hmmm, I guess generally speaking, I use 6’s or 7’s. But, if it’s something that requires knitting to gauge, I usually have to futz around with the needle size cuz I never knit to gauge. What are you knitting?

I usually knit to guage, so I use whatever the pattern tells me to. Right now, I’m working a peacock feathers shawl. Laceweight yarn on size US 4 needles.

Thanks Jax & Bonnie.
