So my dearest, most wonderful boyfriend decided to surprise me with the full set of acrylic interchangeable needles for my birthday. I found the package on our doorstep last night, so the surprise was ruined, and I begged him to let me open it a week early. :mrgreen: The funny thing is, I had ordered myself the Try-It set the other day, which I just received today. So I was planning on returning that one and maybe exchanging it for a couple of extra cables and the size 13 tips which I really want. Now the reason why I’m torn is because I decided to try out the nickel plated needles that came with my Try-It set and I’m kind of in love with them. The acrylic ones are nice too, and I love that I don’t have to be afraid of my stitches slipping off the needles, which I tend to do quite a bit on needles that are more slippery. But since I’m a tight knitter, I’m finding that my stitches aren’t gliding as easily as I would like on the acrylics, but they slide like a dream on the nickels. So I’m debating whether I should just return both sets of needles in exchange for the nickel-plated ones, or stick with the acrylics, learn to loosen up my knitting (which I really need to do) and get a few extras instead. And if I keep the acrylics, I don’t have to go needle-less for another couple of weeks while the new needles arrive. Soooo I really don’t know what to do!
But now that I’ve rambled enough, what would you guys do? I clearly have trouble making decisions. :teehee:
