I just started taking up knitting and right now I only have a pair of 7mm straight needles (Size 10 or 11 US, I think).
Although I think the needles I would need would depend on the project I plan to do but I would like to know what are essentials tool that I need to get along. What are the commonly used needles (straight, dpn, circulars, cables, etc.) and the corresponding sizes? Would it be advisable to get the interchangeable sets (Denise or Boye; the Rainbow Colored Denise by Amy looks really nice)? What other tools should I get?
I’m from the Philippines and have very limited access to tools and supplies locally. My best option is to order online and it would be cheaper for me to buy as much as possible in one go.
Thanks for the help.
