circular vs. straight question
I use circulars mostly, but I really like straights and they feel more... authentic to me somehow, I guess...

What I'd like to know without ruining my sweater in progress is how many stitches can comfortably be mashed on straight needles? I'm using WW yarn now, I conceivably can see squishing 122 stitches on 14 inch needles, no?

Is there a rule? thanks a bunch!

Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. - Marianne Williamson
