I just bought new circular needles (clover bamboo ones) and the plastic cord is super spiral-y. How can you best straighten them out a bit before knitting?

*I am embarking on my very first sweater!*

Hold the cable cord in a bowl of hot water for about a minute and then run through fingers to straighten. That's about the easiest I know of.

I buy the Clover bamboo and that's what I do run them under hot water.

The addi turbos don't have that problem.

The ones I got at Walmart do. I hadn't thought of putting them in warm water.

I did this yesterday, and was so happy to see the cord uncurl.
Thanks!
