The Daily Purl

before you knit

Inox needles are the recommended choice for knitting lace.
I’ve been using them to knit birch. I’m almost finished -which took me a little by surprise.
Speed. I’m not sure it’s a good thing with knitting. I don’t care if I knit slow or fast, whatever. I just love to knit. But when you find a needle that allows you to knit a little bit faster and with greater ease it makes all the difference.
Circular needles with a nylon cord often require a bit of care before you start knitting.

One thought on “before you knit

  1. this is a great trick. I used to hate the cable on this needle until I started resting it in boiling water. The addi joins are still better but INOX are better for lace since the needle is pointier.
