This isn't technically a "how to" question but I'm going to put it here anyway.
I wanted to make my daughter the Spring Beret http://www.knittinghelp.com/forum/showthread.php?t=89411&highlight=spring+beret
The pattern calls for size 8/9 24" circular needles, and the pattern even mentions that "interchangeable needles work well here." I use KnitPicks Options and have the right needle tips and the 24" cable. I cast on 74 stitches, but the 24" cable is way too big. The yarn is really stretched all around the cable and made it too difficult to knit. I guess I'm going to have to buy some fixed circs, but I wondered if anyone else who made this beret had the same issue.
