Hi everyone. I’m new to knitting, and I have a problem…
So I’m making a shawl for my MIL, and it’s knit on circular needles (though back and forth–I assume this is because of the number of stitches on the needle). But being a new knitter, and cheap :hmm: , I bought the least expensive circ needles I could find. I know, I know, you get what you pay for! :doh:
Anyway, no problem with the connect point between the needle and the circular part, it’s smooth enough. The problem is with the flexible nylon part (I’m sure there is a name for this, but it escapes me, sorry). I ran it under boiling water for a couple of minutes to work the kinks out before I cast on, but two days later, it’s just as stiff and unflexible as it was before I started. So my question is, if I spring for a more expensive set, will I still have this problem? And if not, do you have a recommended brand?
Thank you all for your advice here, I really appreciate it.
