Dowels for knitting needles

It is sad to say but by supplier for dowels is not making dowels for medical health  reasons. Dowels on demand has made the best exotic dowels for me for 3 years now.

So I have been hunting for a new supplier. I found this site

and they have cool knobs for the ends

good price.
I will tell you how I like the needles

Here is a chart for sizing needles

This year I am ordering 1/4 in needles for the 1st grade

I can't find your first name or any e-mail address to contact you! I really need to ask if I can use your painting of The Fisherman and His Wife for my fairy tale analysis this month for "The Wonder of Childhood" online magazine.

My name is Christine Natale and I am a once and future Waldorf teacher and writer of fairy tales. I'm friends with Jen DiMonte of Ancient Hearth.

Please e-mail me at at your earliest convenience. I have known your blog for a long time. I thought I was already following it, but somehow I missed it. Corrected now. I look forward to being able to have a deeper connection with you. Thank you! Christine
