straight vs. circular needles
I have a sweater pattern that needs size 8 needles and all I have are the short ones. But I have to start with 110 and there is NO WAY I can make that fit on these short needles (50 is pushing it for me). Can I use my size 8 circular needle instead? You know the kind with the big loop connecting them. And also, is it normal to not be able to knit more than about 50 stitches on the short 10 inch long needles or am I doing something wrong? Thanks!
