I just started around a month ago…totally learned from the vids on this site (which are AWESOME!!)
I have a question -
I’ve just been picking up supplies without really knowing what I’m looking at (I know, newbie mistake) and I was excited to buy some bamboo circular needles for $1.50 at wal-mart the other day. I didn’t realize that I needed to check the [I]length[/I] of the cable…
Anyway, my issue is, I was going to knit my 3 year old daughter a rolled cap for winter. I measured her head, measured my stitches and came out with 96 for my cast-on (I’m using the easy peasy hat pattern from Lion Brand) when I cast on my new needles, I had a TON of space left…and stupidly I tried to go ahead anyway and just pull the cable out some so I could still get the stitches to go around. Well, needless to say, that didn’t work out so well.
Am I just going to have to go and buy new needles? or can I make it work with this one?
I forgot to mention that I have a 29" needle set (I measured it from tip to tip) and the needle size is US 8.
