The other day I went through my inventory of needles -- yes, I have them all organized in one place, separated into DPNs, circulars, and straights -- and I happily discovered that over the years, I've developed a healthy collection from size 3 to 13. Why I don't have US1 or US2 is likely because I haven't really done much lace knitting. I was so impressed with myself, even patting myself on the back for having a size 13. And then I saw this:

I haven't made it down to Loopy Mango yet, but I think I really have to now. The shop specializes in oversized projects, and every time I check out their latest news, I'm always amazed at what they're working on.
These are US50 (uh huh, you read that right!), and I can hardly imagine what they're like to knit with. Somehow the knitter doesn't look like it's too difficult, but I'm not even sure I'd have the room in my house for the yarn, let alone where I would store those needles.
So do I dare try these? Would you?
