OK knitting people, I need some advice…
I have swatched for Notorious and “got gauge” with my HipKnits aran silk – woo hoo! Strangely, I have two skeins, one labelled 180g, and another that looks the same, but together they weight 400g…. hmmm. Anyway, I think it is enough if the “metres per 100g” is correct.
So… now I need circular needles. I own one sad old circular, with no size marked, but it appears to be 4.5 or 5mm. It is aluminium with a plastic cable and I only tried it once and hated it. It kinked and twisted and the stitches got stuck at the join between the cable and the needle – shudder! But I know that I cannot possibly rework the Annie Modesitt pattern to knit on straight needles – I had a look at it last night and it did my head in.
So… Denise or KnitPicks or Boye Interchangeables? Or would you buy them singley and get Addi Turbos? (See? I know all the names to drop, but there is no knowledge behind my words!)
