Are these the ones that are size 50 in the US? I only used them once - for a lap blanket made with super bulky yarn - and really didn't like them. Too big for me, I'll stick with the more common...

If they're for a kid, I'd personally go with acrylic. It can take a lot of abuse and still just get thrown in the washer and dryer. And, if they're going to be outgrown soon, I don't see where making...

Maybe it means you alternate sides that you increase on the 8th and 10th rows - 1 side increase on the 8th, the other side increase on the 10th.

Make sure you round off the edges of the hole that the yarn is going through, or it could ruin it.

I'm also a "needle knitter", so I know nothing about loom knitting. Sorry.

It might just be me, but it seems like the double pointed needles would be awfully short for a lot of projects. What do you want to knit with them?

Not sure how that's happening. Too bad we don't have a video of you knitting to see if we could figure it out.
