I have a question about interchangeable needles… I have an opportunity to buy a set at a good price, and can’t decide if I want to “take the plunge”, so to speak.
I’d consider myself an adventerous beginner at this point LOL I haven’t yet ventured into the world of circular knitting, knitting in the round (I don’t even know if those two terms mean the same thing or not!)… anything beyond plain old straight needles. I’d like to learn someday, though. In the meantime, my plan was to accumulate the different sized straight needles. Does a set of interchangeable needles do away with the need for straight needles? For example, if I wanted to make something, and the needle calls for a set of #5 straight needles… can I accomplish that using the interchangeable needles? I don’t really know how they work, exactly.
Thanks for the help, as always!
