OH MY GOD!!!! KK, you are hilarious!! That's the funniest thing I've seen on here yet. Your employer is lucky to have such a creative person on staff. You need a raise!


But it just occurred to me that you may have written that on company time.

I LOVE using circs for large flat knitting - I don't like using straight needles over 10" as they are uncomfortable to use for continental knitters like myself esp if your chair has arms!

Unlike many of the super-experienced knitters here, I only just completed my third project. My first two were dishcloths (on straight needles). The one I just completed however was a scarf, that is flat, and I did it with circular needles.

Circs may take you a little to adjust to them but there is nothing that prevents you from using them just like regular needles. The biggest issue I found with them was getting the cable uncurled... it took soaking the needles in near boiling hot water for about 3-5 minutes for me to finally get them to stop curling.

I just had a situation where my circs didn't work for me. I had to make a lot of M1s in a pattern and it was so difficult with the points that were on the circular needle I was using--size 10 1/2. I switched to straights, which are pointer and no problem! I'm glad I had them.
