I accidentally dropped one of the needles I have been using to knit my scarf and, in the process of retrieving it I stepped on it (hey, a truck is a bit cramped ya know). The needle was bent pretty badly. I straightened it but it creased a bit.
As the new Boye circ I bought the other day is the same size I decided to knit the scarf over to the circ and try it out.
I like the feel of the circ even though it is a bit awkward for me at the moment as I am used to handling much longer needles. I can see using circs all of the time once I get used to it.
The thing is, I thought Boye was supposed to be a good brand, or am I wrong about this? The “wire” is basically thick nylon line, like a heavy fishing line or something, and it definitely has some memory to it. It doesn’t hang straight at all but has a mind of it’s own and wants to bend and curve.
Is it supposed to be like this? Somehow I thought it would be more flexible and pliant. I feel like I’m fighting with the needle as much as trying to knit.
Maybe I just have to get used to it.
