cubics size
Hi everyone, just wondering how you mark your cubics size since the imprinted size wears off? Am thinking i'll shift to the dreamz for the color coding

It doesn't say on the needle? Maybe they have a special gauge to measure square needles?

I just use a needle gauge for my options. It's easy. Plus I have them organized by size in my needle case so as long a I put them back inthe right slot I'm usually fine,

My Sunstrucks don't have sizes marked at all and the ones I have from WEBS that are marked, I can't read because it's so small. I've been trying to come up with a way to color code the metal part of the join so I can at least be sure to pull out a matching set. I marked sizes on the slots of the plastic thing I keep them in but always double check the size with a gauge to be sure.

Use a needle gauge, GG. And always put your needles back in the same container/slot if you remember.

I have a couple of these needle cases. I love them! They fold up small and fit in my knitting bag. Next time I get one I'm going to have her iron on the size numbers.

The Cubics needles (at least the ones from Webs) are standard sizes and can be measured using any needle gauge sizer thingy (official name, I'm sure) that you'd normally use for round needles.

I was using my Cubics and the the Magic Loop knitting a hat and the one in my right hand snapped in two right where the wood met the metal join. I emailed Webs about it and they are sending me a new pair of needles.

My first fixed Cubics set was not smooth at the join and they replaced it, no problem. I didn't like it quite enough to get more. Good thing there are different styles of needles for different people.
