I am interested in knitting my first baby blanket and I’m trying to get some good circular needles to use. I got some susan bates silvalume in size 11- 36 in and size 10.5 - 29 in because they were on sale and came recommended by the lady in Joanne’s. Once I got them though they just don’t seem to feel right and I cannot seem to get the plastic cable uncoiled (I guess they’ve been in the package so long that it’s just kinda stuck in the coiled position).
Have any of you used these needles with success? How do I get them to uncoil? Do you have any other inexpensive (under $10)circulars that you can recommend? I plan on returning these ones today.
