Using the right needle
I've been asked to knit some more wristlets or fingerless gloves. I've discovered that when knitting by the Magic Loop method, the needle makes a difference. The top needle in the picture is straight, with a cord much the same diameter as the needle. It's much easier to slide the stitches along this needle than the bottom one, which has a bend in it and a cord much smaller than the needle. So, I've learnt something!
