circular needle info
I just purchased several circular needles second hand through the classifieds. They are:
1-size 10 with 20" length, 1 size 6 with 20" length, 1 size 7 with 9 1/2" length and 1 size 11 with 15" length. The sizes are Canadian. The first one, the size 10 with 20" length is made of metal, and the rest are plastic.
Can anyone tell me a few basic things I should know about using these needles (ie are you limited to knitting the whole length of the needle or can your work be smaller with a portion of the plastic cable held outside of the kntting? did I read that somewhere?) and also what the metal needle would be best suited for.
thanks a bunch!
