I can't decide whether this problem is caused by
1. my acryllic needles (Susan Bates Crystalites),
2. the mostly acryllic yarn (Caron Jewelbox), or
3. maybe Im knitting too tightly (I dont think so....my right needle always slides in effortlessly)
but, my needles seem "sticky". Same problem when I knit with a wool blend.
I bought the crystalites because they were affordable in sets (and really CUTE with all those rainbow colors...) and I can take them on an airplane, which is important because I take short business trips & also Im going to Costa Rica in June. I didnt like bamboo so much because they didnt slide nice.
