  Knitting Tip: How to Choose Needles  

Trying a new project using cotton yarn & having trouble keeping your stitches even?

Try using BAMBOO needles for knitting with COTTON!

The slight "tooth" of the bamboo will help you control the loop size of each stitch.

Cotton is slippery and smooth.

METAL needles are great for WOOL!

Wool is just hairy enough to hold slightly onto the surface of the needle and stays even easier.
