I am a strong beginner knitter. Maybe not that strong since I only have 2 of Clue One, 3 of Clue Two.
After using 4 different kinds of needles for this project so far I can tell you I much prefer working with my circular needles. They are shorter, so I can hold my work closer to me allowing me to rest my arms a bit better, so I am not as tense. I am only a beginner knitter, just a few dishcloths years ago. I had given up ever trying to learn to knit. This project has helped me so much in gaining confidence. Try switching to your circular needles and seeing if they are more comfortable. On your next row knit onto one of your circular needles to switch out (unless they are different sizes)
I had used:
and now Addi (steel?) circular
I love using the Addi knitting needles!!! They are SO much easier to knit with! They are more expensive, but well worth the cost! And I like using the circular needles too. Happy knitting!
