I just ordered a set of ChiaoGoo needles, and I am impatiently waiting for them to arrive from China. They are sock sizes, in 2″ and 3″ tips, with various cords. I’m hoping to use a tip from each set (the size of the needle is the same, it’s just the length of the tip that differs) and be able to knit TAAT using 2 circulars. We’ll see how it goes, and whether or not ChiaoGoo replaces my love of hiyahiya 9″ circulars. They won’t be here for quite some time, but I will impatiently wait by the mailbox for them to get here.
