Gift of large-size needles
I was given some size 15 needles: do I have to use ultra-chunky yarn or face a lot of holes in my work? How do big needles change the look, feel, and texture of work done on normal worsted yarn? I do have some Hometown USA yarn that I was going to use (about half an inch wide yarn).

What I'm really asking is about the nature of the interchangeability of bulky/slender needles to bulky/slender yarns.

Voices of experience, please lend me some wisdom? Thanks in advance Suzee (because you've always responded to me, quickly) and Jan (who has been great in the past too) and anyone else who responds.
