Rennagayle, I remember reading something about boiling the needles or soaking them or something (at least the cord part), to eliminate the tendency of the cord to curl before you use them. :thinking: As long as the cord isn't trying to curl & twisting the needles in my hand, circulars seem easy & fun. Maybe someone else knows exactly what to do about that?

Good luck!

yup, just boil some water, and stick the cord part in for a few seconds, then stretch and lay flat. Easy!
