Haven't had time to try mine out yet but I bought them for socks...
Since I'm a loose knitter I don't anticipate a problem with the sts getting over the join...to me it seems very smooth.
I tend to knit rather tight, especially for socks, so I'm sure that's part of my problem.
I have a set of these in 2.25 mm (sock). I can’t stand them! The stitches Wiil. Not. Move. Over. The. Join. Grrrrr. I spent way too much time pushing and pushing, then pushing too hard, and having stitches fly off the needle. It’s a good concept, but it just didn’t work for me. I’ll probably be putting them up for sale . I’m really disappointed, they sounded like such a good idea. I'm ok with double points, so I went back to using those.
If there was an active Admin this post would have been moved to General Chit Chat and it hasn't.
Exactly! And did anyone notice this discussion is on the Home Page? That's because it's one of the most active topics in Main. That's why discussions like these were always moved, so they don't show on the Home Page, where only knitting topics and things from Pictures are typically shown.
You missed My point.
He most certainly did! He's the troll from the attic everyone is putting on their ignore list, but of course he wouldn't mention that here in Main. Frankly, I don't know what he's doing in Main. This is for knitting and crocheting talk, neither of which he does. So no, there's nothing he could help anyone here with.
Are there any other topics being posted, or just politics?
I saw 2 political topics, the rest were to welcome, help getting around Ravelry, and of course, knitting. The attic here on KP was not all political before, so it isn't now. There were some that only
used the KP attic to post their politics, rarely even ventured into the main forums to help with knitting/crocheting, but I highly doubt they will be welcomed into that Ravelry group.
J-J brings up a good point: "Overly long topics aren't broken after they pass 99 pages." There are quite a few topics like that. They are ongoing. I don't know all that much about the tech stuff, but I believe something like this will slow the site down, eventually grinding to a halt. So, it's not a matter of IF, it's a matter of WHEN.
Just today Ravelry was down for a few minutes. The administrator(s) quickly got the site back up. Stuff happens once in a while. It may eventually happen to KP, only there's no one at the controls, so that could pretty much be the end when it does happen.
Thanks for the heads up. I didn’t look, I’ll take your word for it that it’s disgusting. I kind of thought this would happen sooner or later. I was waiting to join the Rav group until I needed to. Now I need to. I’m glad there’s a place where I can still keep in touch with some of you. I look at it this way, Fishgutz won’t be there, Amy won’t be there, Crafty won’t be there, etc. It may not be the same, but it’ll be better.
Rocky, you may want to put this downstairs in GCC. Everyone deserves to know and it gives them a chance to clear out before they stumble on it themselves, if they so wish.
Happy Valentine's Day everyone!❤️❤️❤️
But YOU choose to stick YOUR big nose in NOW?
WHAT WE ALL KNOW is simply YOUR opinion based on your ignorance.
A day later and off the mark! As expected... you ARE a biddy, correct? ENOUGH SAID!
But … I was talking to Amy. Is YOUR name Amy today??
If it’s not, try not to answer her posts for her. Anyways,
you sound asinine.
Now now Amy, we all know this was no “misunderstanding”. What happened was that you FAILED to COMPREHEND what you read. And it was only three little words!!! No word bigger than 4 letters!! I hear there are some very good reading comprehension courses for adults that flunked it in school, probably one at your community college. You should take one. It may (or may not) help.
If you hadn’t stuck your big nose into the conversation before COMPREHENDING what was written, none of this would have happened.
I’ve also heard that the newer Knit Picks needles aren’t what they used to be. I had a few sizes in their metal interchangeables and they were fine, but the cords kept breaking so I chose a different brand (Hiya Hiya) when I purchased a full set. I never even used the Knit Picks for magic loop, so it wasn’t like I was pulling on the cord.
nanaakb1, I’ve had trouble with stitches getting caught at the join too. I’m a pretty tight knitter when I make socks and that was the problem I was having. I didn’t want to loosen my gauge, but I could not get those stitches over the join. I wasn’t using ChiaoGoo or even doing magic loop. It is happening with those new Addi Flexi Flips needles. They’re not circulars but they still have a join where cord meets needle.
Bye bye glengirl. You have ruined this thread with your condescending and unnecessary comments.
Thank you thank you thank you! ❤

For a while she monopolized that topic, so obviously she just loves Katsch's topics. In fact, I'd say she has a girl crush.
Oh ick! Take a shower Katsch.
