needle sizes
Hello! I am just starting out. I have a question...for some of the simpler patterns (like dish clothes, socks, purses), do you have to use the size of needle stated in the pattern? The couple patterns I was looking at on this site say #9 and some say #8 or #11, etc...I currently have a size #10 since I had read that was a good "starter" size. I know if I keep this up some day I will buy more needles but I just wondered what I should do at this point in time. Thanks for your help!
