Hello everyone -- I just discovered this site a week ago or so, and I love what you've done, Amy! The videos have been enormously helpful, and I've discovered that I am, by nature, a Continental knitter. I believe I happened into this style because my Swedish grandmother taught me to knit many, many years ago, and I have a feeling I just naturally went the way she taught me even though the book I was using recently was showing English style.
Anyway, that is all beside the point, and the question I have today has to do with circular knitting. I am getting ready to knit a backpack from Kids Knitting by Melanie Falick (No, I'm not a kid anymore ), and it calls for size 9 24" needles. Well, I was only able to find a size 8 29" set when I was at Hobby Lobby recently. Is there a way to make these work?
Thanks so much. I've enjoyed the conversations on here and look forwad to joining in.
