ooh, I never thought of the material the needles are made of making a difference. I've been knitting a sweater on plastic coated aluminium needles, and I have also used them for the sleeves. I am doing it in the round bottom up and am nearing the part where I join the sleeves (ok it would have been easier top down, it's an experiment) I put all the bits as I finished them on my Denise cables, and was going to finish the top part on them. They are "grippier" than the aluminium ones so I am hoping it wont change the gauge enough to be noticable.
