Circular Knitting
In circular knitting, how do you keep the cable straight while knitting?

Some cables are curly when you take them out of the package and don't want to cooperate even when there is knitting on them.

You can soak them in really hot water and lay them straight to cool, or heat them with a hair dryer to help straighten them out.
