I’m knitting a baby afghan (for my 17th great-grandchild!!), using KnitPicks interchangeable needles and 210 stitches in baby yarn. The finished afghan will be about 38 x 38 inches and I have about 22 inches done so far. My problem is that while the KnitPicks needles are 'way better than the Walmart variety, as the work gets longer the nylon cable twists or kinks about every eight rows (two pattern repeats), and I have to take it off the needles to straighten the twists.
Is this twisting typical of circular needles, or am I doing something wrong here? – and does anyone know if there is a way to prevent this from happening?
PS: I’m a newbie to KnittingHelp.com, and I do love this website!
