I’m new to knitting, just started about a month ago when I broke my leg. I sent my mom to get me yarn and needles so I could practice and all I have done is one dishcloth (plus practicing different techniques, etc). I ordered several yarns and interchangeable needles and cables from an online source (since I still can’t walk much and didn’t want to shop) to be able to start a baby blanket. I’ve waited so patiently for my supplies to arrive, and today was the big day! I opened everything and got it set up, casted on 158 stitches and went to attach the second needle (I was just using one of the end pieces until then) and it DIDN’T FIT!! I don’t know what the problem is…it just is too big/loose, doesn’t screw on, just slides on and off. I tried it on both cables that I receive, all ends and it just doesn’t work. I’m so depressed about it because I need something to do!
Are these things completely interchangeable, or only certain systems (I’m wondering if I could buy other needles to fit the cable at the store)? I could send it back, but it only cost like $6 and I’d have to pay to send it back…and wait all that time.
I just wanted to share my frustration since nobody in my home gets it/cares.
OTN: 158 cast on stitches…that’s it! Ha ha
