Default Circular needles

Hi all, I've recently got back into knitting and am looking to buy some circular needles. Thing is, I need long needles, and I just cannot find any that have needles long enough. I'm missing fingers on my left hand so have to tuck the end of the needle under my arm to be able to hold it still enough to work with.

I'm sure, if I had the time/money I could fashion my own out of old needles, but buying some would be so much nicer!! Does anyone know of such things existing anywhere? I dont want to miss out on all the gorgeous patterns that require circular needles as I have a young daughter and she is always in need of little knitted dresses

Thank you all in advance.

Hmmm, the needle would have to be at least 6 inches long before the cable to be any good. Does anyone sell them that long?

I love love my Boyle interchangeable set but unfortunately the needles aren't very long. Have you tried Knitpicks? They look long.

The knitpicks are only about 5 inches.

Your best bet would be long dpns.
