The Bottom of the Needle Barrel
I had to go back to when I first started knitting to find some needles that would work for the Rasta Neckwarmer I'm knitting. I started with size 13s since I'm a loose knitter. When that didn't work, I switched up to 15. Still not getting gauge, I went to the stash of needles in the basement for 17s.... could only find one of each of plastic and aluminum. And they are both straights and long.
Do you know how long it's been since I knitted with straight needles?
