Using a needle size guage
I inherited a bunch of circular knitting needles and crochet hooks .... unmarked.
I also received three gauges ... two plastic and one metal.
I am not sure how to read it .... when I put a knitting needle into the hole, do I read the hole where only the tapered end fits in butnot the shank? Or the first hole that the entire needle fits? Should it fit the hole snugly or have 'wiggle' room?
How do crochet hooks fit in? I tried a known K hook but could only fit it in the P hole .....

Hi there, all!
Here's the latest entry in my cowl obsession. I believe that I may have developed a new design? I've never seen a pattern shaped like mine.

Having difficulty with a 10 stitch cable getting so tight cannot proceed with pattern
A big thank you to KP member crivitz! She had offered, on this site, free cotton thread to anyone willing to reimburse her for the postage. I gave her the colors I would like and told her any size would be appreciated. For less than $24.00 she sent me all of this. She asked to be reimbursed once I received the package. She took a big chance trusting strangers to keep their end of the agreement. She stated she trusts everyone on KP, which is awesome! After being on this site, I think I agree with her.
Again, KUDOS, to crivitz!
