One of the Internet’s strengths is its ability to help consumers
find the right needle in a digital haystack of data.

Wouldn’t you think I’d have every size of knitting needle after all of these years? Wrong. My grandson has already out-grown the red Wallaby I knit for him for this Christmas so I’m rapidly knitting a larger one. I’ll post a photo when I’m finished. I’ve worked up to the underarm on #5 circular needles but, when I started the sleeves, I discovered I have no #5 double-points. I also have no local yarn shop. I searched the internet and ordered a set of needles from The Local Needle in Florida. I received an email from them that they had mailed it the same day. Wow. Somebody knows knitters and their needs.
