How important is it to exactly follow the needle suggestions in patterns? For example, the only needles I have are size 10 (6.0 mm), but I want to do a little dishcloth project, but there don't seem to be any size 10 dishclothes. Can I just pick one and start anyway??
On a different note...
YAY!! I'm very happy - I've figured out how to cast on, and how to do both the knitting and purling stitches!!! Go me!!
