I am making a pair of socks w/size 2 Susan Bates circs. I have noticed that one of the needles is very sharp and the other is very dull. Is this a quality control issue, or is it on purpose?
I don’t find it that helpful. If the sharp needle is in the right hand, K2tog is easy but SSK is hard. Knitting is easy, unknitting is hard. Plus, I made the entire first sock with the dull needle in my right hand, which was a bit annoying because I knew I would have been able to knit faster had I had it the other way.
I would rather they both have the same tip (both be sharp, actually).
