Am I the only one?

P1010847

Addi Turbo Lace circular needles… Am I the only one who CANNOT find a way to get the cables to relax? I have tried the ‘tricks’ I found online – soak them in near-boiling water for varying periods of time, try hanging a weight on them after soaking, etc… and yet, within minutes, they go back to this. I use them for magic loop sock knitting, and they drive me batty!

My addi turbo interchangeables aren’t nearly this bad, but of course they don’t make size 1 interchangeables (at least I’ve never found any such needle)… What I want is a soft, flexible cable that doesn’t curl every five seconds!

End rant.

  1. I would also like to know the answer to the stiff cable problem. I’ve noticed that the colder and drier (winter) air makes the problem worse but I haven’t discovered a solution.
