I bought a set of bamboo needles and knit a dish cloth with them, and you know, I really like them. I was expecting them to be “draggy”, at least more so than aluminum needles–and they may be a little bit more.
How do bamboo needles compare to Denise needles? I’m curious if they have about the same amount of drag. I bought some KP Options, and maybe when I’m a little more skilled at knitting, I’ll like them better. In the meantime, I drop stitches like crazy with them because they are so darn slick. I’m getting icthcy to try the Denises even though I hate to spend the money.
I’m also tempted to try knitting socks on circular needles. I’m really into socks since I finally got the hang of them. I enjoy DPNs but feel like I have to get my money’s worth out of the circular needles I have purchased. Looks like you basically split the stitches with half on each circular–does that sound right?
Thanks for all the encouragement and patience! You’se guys are the best.
