[color=red][b]I bought a pair of Boye 29", 6.5 mm (10 1/2) needles to make a blanket … well aside from the fact that I was wanting to do kpkp and next row pkpk I did kpkp on ALL the rows till I realized “this doesn’t look like what I wanted” so I took it apart, fortunately only four rows were done … the stitches are very loose, it’s on Bernat Satin yarn so I think the needles might be slightly large … that’s ok, I can buy others!! :teehee:
I rather like the circulars because the project can lie in your lap rather than strain on your wrists by hanging there but the “cord” of the needles are very stiff … my question is, does this go away with use? or is there a better needle with a different type of cord that would be easier to maneuver?
I’ve just discovered a new yarn shop and they have so many lovely looking needles (if that is possible) … my daughter found some HUGE ones and wondered “what on earth do you use THOSE for?” … a very open poncho??? an air conditioned scarf? I saw bamboo ones too but they all seem to have this same type of plastic cord … just wonder what is easiest to use or if these will break in eventually.
