Hi Judy! I used KA brand for the red bag and CLOVER brand for the Noro . I recommend CLOVER brand for this project mainly because the spot/drop of super glue dried more quickly & instantly at.that. The KP brand would be nicer to actually knit with because they have more polish, or varnish or whatever. The glue didn't instantly "set". I had to add a drop or two more.

I bought another pair of CLOVER bamboo straights in US 15 should the "bee" bite me again and I'll knit another bag! Maybe wider and taller and then ever so slightly felting the sides after seaming, then picking up stitches along the top edge onto US 9's or 10's with double strands, then knitting them off onto the CLOVER bamboo US15's as per pattern.

The needles are only $6 and change at Amazon.
