After comisterating with the gals at the LYS, they suggested that I “step away” from the socks and try some new Kollage Square needles that they had been given as demos. I thought that they might be easier to manage than round ones, and they are supposedly ergonomic, and create a more uniform stitch. I did like the way the kneedles felt balanced in my fingers, but it took a bit to get used to. The stitches actually seemed to twist around the needle easier than with round. The project went very quickly, but I think I would have to try them on a bigger progect to see if they really are easier on the hands. I did LOVE the cable, very flexible. The one downfall was that if the needle was overtaxed, it created a sharp edge between the needle and the cable that didn’t allow the stitches to slide across easily.
Unfortunately, the rep is requiring the LYS to order something ridiculous like $1200.00, for this teeny yarn shop. I wish the rep would bend a bit and give them a break. I’d especially like to try a 1 or 0 since I’m on socks at the moment or a different size with a longer cable to move my pulli or start my wrap project on.
