Since I am trying to be brave, I shall add that I am looking forward to attempting the cotton knitting with or without EKG's horse.
I have never tried plastic needles. So far I prefer the Clover Bamboo ones, though there are many other kinds I have not tried. I did read that bamboo needles are good to use when knitting cotton.
If anyone else has any all cotton knitting tips, I'd really appreciate them.
The yarn is not here yet for I ordered it Saturday on the internet. I'll let you know what happens when it gets here. Thanks for the advice.
