hi! long time since i was on here...so an update to this post...i exchanged the spectra flair acrylic tips for the cubics rose.....tried them out for 5 mins yesterday - only knit two rows and my hands started to feel tingly! So...maybe circulars are not for me after all....and i'm best to stick with straights. Shame really...I've seen so many nice patterns which are seamless and it would make my life slightly easier if I made my first garment seam free..never mind...i'll put the yarn I bought for the dress i wanted to make to some use i'm sure...
