Breaking in New Circular Needles
Hi! I just got myself some new bamboo circular needles. I am going to try and make an easy knit baby afghan. I always make everyone crochet baby shower gifts. I would like to try knitting this time. I have a baby girl cousin coming next May. I am a semi-beginner knitter. I've made all the easy stuff. Now I am ready to branch out and knit something a little more extensive. I remember reading somewhere how to break in your new circulars. Couldn't find it anywhere. I think it involved submerging in hot water or something. Do any of you guys do that with your stiff, new circulars? Also any easy, easy knit baby afghans anyone can share? I have an old Leisure Arts leaflet with a couple of good ones. Always fun to look at more though!
