I can't imagine knitting sweaters with these needles especially with Scandinavian designs like my grandmother did but it is satisfying to use her needles even for a small project.
I've been following this thread and I'm glad you got it figured out; I couldn't find anything helpful to add. It's a small thing like that that can really make everything come out wrong and be such a pain. A bigger, more obvious error would have been easier to spot. Little things can be such a problem sometimes.
Using your grandmother's needles is awesome. I like to think that someday one of my grandkids would like to use mine.
