Is there anything you can do to keep the cables from curling? I have tried hot water but they still keep curling. It is making me NUTS! :wall:
I warmed mine in hot water then put them in a book as you would a bookmark with the needles sticking out and they did striaghten quite a bit. Get them into the book before they cool off.
[color=indigo]I also suggest storing them hanging rather than curled up. I hang mine over a hook so the weight of the needles + gravity over time helps them stay straight. :teehee: [/color]
Thanks ladies. Didn't think about putting them in a book! Good idea!
Silver had a suggestion in another topic about circular needles. Dunk the cables in boiling water for a few seconds and then stretch them (gently) while you run them under cold water. Worked like a charm for me.
