I just started knitting a couple months ago. A friend originally taught me how to knit using metal needles, maybe a size 7. I didn't really like them because the stitches slipped off. Also, she gave me really thin yarn so it took forever. Another friend suggested that I get chunky yarn and big needles. I bought size 13 bamboo needles. I loved those needles. It worked up really quickly because of the chunky yarn and the big needles. I still use bamboo needles. I recently bought a pair of plastic needles that were on clearance. I'm looking forward to trying them out.
