The starter kit that i did get have a size 6 and 8, so it is ok to use a size 8, any other size needles should I get? and just to make sure the yarn i got, is fine as well?
from the one thing i read is the bigger the needle and type of yarn can make a big diffrence for a beginner.
thanks for the help
