Slippery needles!

I have a pair of medal needles that I don’t really like. They are the only ones in the size I need in my area. So, my question is what can I do to make them not so slippery? My yarn keeps sliding off and it is really annoying!!! I would much rather prefer circulars, but none to be found.


:thinking: I’ve never heard of anyone trying to make needles less slippery. I’m not sure how you could do that. All I can suggest is to try using wooden needles if you can find them.

maybe try rubbing them down with sandpaper, worth a try. go to your home improvement store and tell the employees what you want to do and they’ll be able to give you the correct “grit” of sand paper.

I thought of doing that, but I didn’t know if the yarn would snag on the needle. I guess it is a matter of what you are used to using. I got used to using circular needles and these are so long and straight! Thanks for the help! :smiley:

Bamboo needles are good for not being too slippery…I like the bamboo a ton
