Regarding knitting using circular needles. I have a real problem getting an nice even knitting stitch with circular; however I get a very nice even stitch when I use straight needles. Does anyone else have this problem? If so, do you have any hints? Because of problems with my hands I would prefer to use circular needles, but the result is really sloppy.
I have not used straight needles in more years I can count. My circular needles are ChiaoGoo Lace Tip fixed and Interchangeable needles with 5" tips. I simply can not comfortably use anything shorter. Perhapse the length of your tips is part of your problem. Another issue could be the material of your needles...wood and bamboo both tend to be a bit "grabby" while metal tend to be more slippery. Square needles cause a different gauge for some folks, that tends to be a little tighter.
