I am using 2 circular needles to knit socks for the first time. I have knit socks before on dpn's, but after hearing the rave reviews of knitting on 2 circulars, I decided to try that. The method is much simpler, but I am running into a problem with one of my needles.
Everytime I go to move my stitches from the middle of the cord, to the end of the needle, so I can knit them, they keep getting caught in the spot where the needle meets the cords, and I have to manually move the stitches one by one. It's taking so much time to do that, that I think it would be much quicker to use dpn's instead. I am using two different brands of needles, and the needle giving me the most trouble is the size 2 needle from my Boye Needlemaster set. The other needle is a cheapie, and it's working just fine!
Does anybody have any suggestions about dealing with this problem?
And OT from this question - I had a dream last night that I posted a picture of a pair of socks in the What'cha Knittin' section, and nobody commented on the socks, but everybody told me that I grow really nice leg hair! :shock:
Thanks in advance!
