Circular needles: A love story
I recently got rid of all my knitting needles, except for the circular ones.
I can’t remember the last time I knit something on regular needles. Or worse, on double-pointed needles (horrors).
Circular needles are comfortable to hold and to knit with. They fold up nicely in your lap or in your bag. The stitches seem less likely to fall off the needles.
If you use the magic loop method, you’ll never have to fiddle with DPNs again, which is the real magic.
