On an outing to Daiso today, I was surprised to find some bamboo circulars and stitch holders in the craft section. As some of you may know, Daiso is primarily known as a department store sized Japanese "twoonie" or $2 store, even though there are items that are now above the $2 price point. Nevertheless, it's still a bargain to find bamboo circulars at $2 each when I just bought a circular needle at Dressew for $6. I have to warn you, however, that Daiso only had the 4.5mm and 6.0mm circs offered in 40cm and 60cm lengths at present. It seems that the needle section is never the same when I visit Daiso, so just pop in when you can, and you may be pleasantly surprised. They just might have a bigger selection of needle sizes tomorrow?! Be sure to also check the section that sells the containers to organize your meds. Daiso has these containers in all shapes and sizes, which make them fantastic organizers for stitch markers and other knitting notions.
