I've have these Boye Interchangeable Needles and I have a problem with them and I'm wondering has anyone else experienced the same thing. I use them maybe once and the sleeve where the cord and needles connect inevitably bend outwardly creating a sort of beveling which catches the yarn as it's supposed to slide smoothly as I'm knitting. I've used the US 6, to US 10.5 all with the same results.
I am livid. Working on a new sweater, one that I wanted to do several years ago. The first time, I bought the yarn and they were two different shades, but I'd already knitted up the back and front when I saw it in a different light to my shock and dismay. Fast forward to today, I am trying to do the same sweater and I've never made so many mistakes in my life.
I haven't posted anything for a while, but I finished something and it's the first thing that I actually followed a pattern to do recently. I started it before Christmas with the intention to gift it, but I wore thin and put it away and cringed every time I saw it. I felt like a criminal neglecting it. Well I finally picked it up 2 weeks ago and thought that I'd share it with the community.
I am completely freaking out! I bought a book a few weeks back called "Knits Men Want". I finally decided to knit something from it and ran into the biggest problem!
I saw this somewhere and I thought some others might enjoy it.... Ha, ha! :-) Knitting is one thing that I like doing with my own hands!!!! How about you????
I am taking all of my left over Lopi from prior project and making a scarf. It's wild because it's a lot of color! PRAY!!!! lol!!!!
So glad to be a part of this community, it took me so long to write something, because I had no idea what to write. I've been knitting for 5 years and making slow progress, but having fun.
