size comparison Wowee! Size 0000 needles, I didn't quite realize. My hands felt big and clumsy when I first started and boy, this is smaller than I'd thought. So can see the beginning and I added in the picture with my thumb to give you and idea of the size of this and what exacly I'm working with! Those are Shipwreck size 11/0 ruby A/B beads. Same beads as I used for the ginger.
