I had a pair of acrylic kid knitting needles sitting around and since my uber long metal needles were bugging my hands, I decided to give the kid ones a try. I'm knitting (another) scarf with them using the dread RH Super Saver yarn.
After switching, I would never go back to straights, not the very long ones. Since I don't hold them under my arm while knitting, there's a lot of weight on the hands. Circs make like easier. In my opinion.
The ways of Yarn are inscrutable.
I got mine today!! (rub, rub) LOL
I had hoped the needles themselves would be marked with their size, but they aren't. I guess ill have to write on the nifty little bag they come with. My hubby tells me to just leave them on the card. Dont know what imma do yet.
I use DPN's sometimes as straights cuz they are shorter and dont bump into the sides of my chair, causing more reason to eat chocolate. lol
