I’ll apologize right now if this is in the wrong place. I am on a strictly limited budget and only have one pair of Boye US 8 straight needles. In order to do more things and make more projects, I would need more needles. Given the state of my finances (and the fact that I live in the-middle-of-nowhere Wyoming) what needle sizes and types would be best to let me knit many things? I’m making dishcloths and pot holders for friends/family while I learn different stitches, but I started knitting in the hope of making afghans and large projects.
I am at a complete loss as to what the “basic” needle set would be, and where to find such things. The closest Micheals (that I know of) is three hours away, and JoAnn’s is about two hours.
