How do you label knitting needles?
They are in long strips, and you separate each one simply by bending until the cut connection point snaps. The IDs are numbered with the US number first, then millimeters. The number of tags varies depending on the needle size, with more tags for more popular sizes.
Where do you store needles?
Use business card pages from an office supply store to hold needle cases. It’s easy to find the needle you’re looking for with these clear pages. You can also see at a glance which sizes you have and which ones you need to buy. A large pillbox is perfect for storing sewing machine needles.
Are double pointed needles hard?
Made of stainless steel, they are manufactured with a particular satin-like finish that leaves them smooth but not slippery, allowing you to pick up stitches with ease, without quickly dropping them. Each end is satisfyingly pointy but won’t hurt, if you accidentally poke yourself.
How long should double pointed needles be?
The length of a double pointed needle really depends on what you’re knitting. If you’re knitting something with a small circumference, like a pair of socks, then a length of five or six inches will suffice. But if you’re knitting a hat, then eight or ten inch needles will be more comfortable.
