...I can't seem to find them. I've found 12" addi turbos, but I prefer bamboo.<br><br>
Any help you wonderful fellow knitters can give me is greatly appreciated!<br><br>

Wish I could help but I have never seen any...<br><br>
I'm being nosy (<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">) but why would you want 12"? I think knitting with 16" are already kinda difficult to manipulate. You could just use 2 circs for your project; this is kinda pricey but an easy solution. I would use dpns (but I'm guessing that, like a lot of knitters, you hate those <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/wink1.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="wink1">).<br><br>

I was told that I can use 12" circs instead of dpn's to make socks. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/wink1.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="wink1"><br><br>
Thanks for your replies.<br>
Guess I'm gonna have to go with the addi turbos.

...and just what exactly is this "magic loop" I keep reading about? <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/wink1.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="wink1">

Magic loop is awesome! You use a really long circ, like 32-40", and you can so small circumferance with it. Here's a link:<br><br><a href="http://www.az.com/~andrade/knit/mloop.html" target="_blank">http://www.az.com/~andrade/knit/mloop.html</a>

I like the magic loop. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"> Well, once I saw the woman at the lys show me how to do it. It's really easy.<br>
I use that when I'm knitting something w/my Denise needles. No changing needles, I just switch to 2 long cables.<br>
Otherwise, (like right now since I'm knitting armwarmers) I just use the dpns.<br><br>
But definately try the magic loop. I would think it's easier than 12 in circs.

What about just using 2 circulars together? That's what I do for socks or other small circumfirences. I find it easier than magic loop (which I only tried once) and you can even use two differing lengths of circulars.<br><br>

I use magic loop alot, but I really prefer to use 12"circs for pant legs. There is also something called sock circulars that are like 8". I just got a pair in size 10. I had never even heard of these until Stell, of F&F, mentioned them. I got mine from Morwenna. Her LYS carries them. I've never even seen them online, but they're Clover brand and they're plastic.<br><br>
Back to your original question. I've only seen 12" circs in Addi's (which I believe are nickel).

Last I heard, Morwenna still had one pair from the run she did for everyone.<br><br><a href="http://woolywonder.com/forums/viewtopic.php?p=26692&highlight=#26692" target="_blank">http://woolywonder.com/forums/viewto...ghlight=#26692</a>
