On a whim, I bought some size 9 and size 10 needles during lunch.
I’m wondering if using these size needles would help the project move along a bit faster (in re: to my previous post of knitting a 12.5x12.5 pillow cover for a pillow form I bought)
The yarn I am using does call for size 8 needles (the wrapper with specific gauge details is at home right now) but the yarn is 100% mercanized (forgive me if I spelled that wrong) and quite thick, or at least thicker than the other cotton yarn they had that called for either size 6 or 7 needles (I forget which one)
It seems on the size 8 it is a bit tedius to knit, would bumping up make it any easier? I defintely don’t want to bump down a size at that would have me casting on soooooo many stitches. Plus I believe I used this same yarn (different color) on size 7 needles (to make a wash cloth for mother’s day) and it was even more tedius to knit since the yarn was too thick for the needles. The finished washcloth came out great though…
I am also doing my best to relax and not knit tight. I already started over once because I cast on too tight and the few rows I tried to knit was torture :doh:
