Crystalites loose knitting question
i just bought some new needles Crystalites acrylic in a kit... size 8, 9, 10, 10..... foolishly i gave my favorite size 10 needles to my sister when i bought these.... im not sure if its the yarn im useing (red heart super saver multicolor purples) or the needles... but im working far looser than i ever have... no matter how tight i pull it its still loose and it makes me sad
do you think it might be the needles? or the yarn? or just me?... im normally a tight knitter and crocheter... maybe im cursed for buying needles just becuase they were pretty colors :?

*Sigh*

I think you might be on to something here. I've been learning on metal needles and started using plastic tonight and have noticed a difference in my knitting as well.

Are you using a different yarn than you're used to, as well? If so, maybe that's the culprit!
