Ow ow ow Ive just started to knit....with needles :-D

Recommended Posts

Louise you can get some shorter ones here


Another alternative is to look for a child's knitting set as they have shorter needles.


Everybody has there preference in needle length, I don't unless I am casting on a lot of sts then I need longer ones. I think it's down to the way you hold them.


You can also use circular needles to knit straight, just turn knitting round at end of each row.

Circular knitting comes later. What you do is use the two points like normal needles loops on one knitting with the other then when you get to the end turn your knitting round so point with loops on is now on the left and you start a new line. Sounds complicated but its not.
