Cable on Circ needles

Does anyone have a solution to the curling of the cable on circular needles?? I just bought some and really need them to stop curling!! :shrug: :wall: :!!!: thanx!! :muah: :hug:

Dipping them in hot water then holding straight while they cool is one way to do it. Using them helps straighten 'em out too.


How long in the hot water?

:shrug: A minute or so?


I let mine soak in simmering water for about 5 minutes, and I haven’t had a problem since. But since I use Addies and KnitPicks Options, I never have this problem anymore.

Someone recently posted this and I tried it: Dip in boiling water for a few seconds. You can actually see them relax. Then, keeping them straight, run them under cold water. I tried it and it worked like magic!! Using just hot water didn’t work for mine.

Thanx guys!
