I purchased size 0, 1, 2, 3, knitpicks dpns for socks and although they are longer than my birch needles, I liked using them except for the cast on 'cause they are too slippery and keep falling out.
Anyway, I cast on for a pair of sock with my birch dpns (no slide) and then decided to switch to the knitpicks. The KP dpns don’t have any markings on the needles (the sleeve they came in disappeared along with the size number). I also have the size 2 KPs open. So, to figure out which were which I used my handy-dandy sizer/ruler thingy and tried running the needle I thought was the 1 through the little hole. But the needle only went in to just past the point. It fit into the 2 hole with a little room to spare, but then so did the KP needle in the bag marked 2. I checked my birch 1’s and there was plenty of room on the ruler to run the needle through the size 1 hole.
I’m figuring that I should just assume the smaller of the 2 KP sets is the 1, but it sort of bothers me that the needles seem to be incorrectly sized.
Am I just being anal or has anyone else had this problem with the Knitpicks doublepoints? (Maybe it’s not really a problem; maybe it’s just me.) Any thoughts?
