so...are you saying that I can fit the whole width of an afghan on a 14" needle?
Probably not unless you make them in panels and sew them together. You can probably only get about 25" of width on the 14" needle and you'll have to watch constantly to make sure none of them fall off. A circular needle can hold about 3 times it's width in stitches, so you can easily make a whole afghan on one that's 29-32" long. They can be used to knit flat, you don't have to knit in the round with them and then can also be used to make other things later on, like a sweater.
