I am very new to knitting, and already I am building a collection of needles. My husband thinks I’m insane. I want the wooden ones, the bamboo, the aluminum, the you-name-it. At the yarn shop I saw some of those Vietnamese ones that were so pretty, but I couldn’t afford them. If price was not a factor, they’d be in my knitting bag right now.
Surely with everyone’s love of yarn, there are those who covet knitting needles here too? (My apologies if this topic has been beat to death.)
What types of needles (material, length, etc.) do you recommend for a brand new knitter?
