In a fit of enthusiasm about 20 years ago I bought a pair of 20mm nedles to knit something challenging/exciting with. Problem is I can't remember what it was. I have a feeling it may have been something lacy like a shawl.

Can anyone offer any inspiration other than bags etc. and where to get patterns?

Thanks

Definitely need to put those 20mm needles to work. If you do an advanced search on Ravelry (free to join) you'll find several pages of patterns for that size needle.

including this one which I particularlly like.

Hi BeachNanna, 

I love working with big needles from time to time.  This was project was posted some time ago here on page 10 of the Readers Gallery.   http://www.knittingdaily.com/media/p/48982.aspx  (in case the link doesn't get you there) 

I couldn't resist having a couple larger size 17, 19 35 & 50 needles in my collection.  I just love them too!  My friend asked me what are you going to do with those?  I said, just wait and see, just wait and seeWink  Have you decided what to do with yours?

 And all the women who were wise of heart spun with their hands, and they kept bringing as yarn the blue thread and the wool dyed reddish purple, the coccus scarlet material and the fine linen.   Ex. 35:25
