I just started a new project, a very simple baby blanket knit in ss with a seed stitch border using double strands of worsted weight yarn on a #15 circ needle, only 75 stitches per row. The largest needle I've ever used before is #10. By the time I've knit less than 2 rows, my left hand is hurtin' (I'm a continental knitter). I'm limiting the length of each session working on this project, but am wondering if this discomfort is typical for working with a large needle?
(Now I can justify buying more yarn for an alternate project on smaller needles.
