I have up until now been singing the praises of my Denise needle set.
Until last night.
I went to my LYS and bought some lovely mercerized cotton for the Monica sweater from Knitty.
The pattern is written for straights but it is basically a tube so I am modifying it for circs.
Oh, how frustrating when I started out knitting after having cast on my 146 stitches! The cotton kept getting stuck in the joint of the cable where it joins the little plastic piece that you insert into the needle.
Then the needle would come off and I lost my stitches!
After 3 tries (and my cast on getter looser and looser) I gave up and found an old circ of about the right size and am trying again.
I had no such problems working with the larger needle size and wool instead of cotton yarn.
I didn’t have any problem with the wool catching when I linked 2 cables together to make a longer one.
But working with the cotton was IMPOSSIBLE!!!
I appropriately voiced my opinion in the folder about needle sets.
But I’m wondering if anyone else has had the same problem.
Susan (who is hoping that this here cotton thing is just a fluke cause I have several projects waiting to be started that require circs)
