Can Cable Lengths Be Changed?
Forgive me if this question has already been asked and answered, I looked around quite a bit and did not see this particular problem dealt with.

I have a pattern that calls for circular needles 16" long and 32" long. I just bought the Boye NeedleMaster set and there are only 20", 24", 29" and 36" I guess?? What do I do? Do I need to buy new needles and not use my Boyes? I have seen where some people asked questions about knitting on cables an inch or two longer than the cable called for in the pattern - but is 4 inches too much of a gap? (To use the 20" in place of 16" and 36" in place of 32") I am planning on knitting a very bulky weight yarn for a sweater. I would appreciate any suggestions you experienced knitters have on this matter. I was all excited to get going with my brand new needles and yarn and pattern :(
