|Another quick post. I just finished a total revamp of my circular knitting needle pages. Over the years my stock has grown to include quite a few lines, and I stock every single size. Good seller or NOT!. While my stock increased, I continued to cram them in on only a few pages on my web site. Finally, I was able to replace those slow loading pages with 23 new pages. I stock 23 different circular sizes. But here's the problem. How to divide the needles.|
So I remembered what the standard request is when someone needs a needle. Knitters usually say "I need a #7 needle". After they are focused on the size they want, they then decide the brand. So I decided to start by dividing the needles into sizes. Then I ran into another snafu. A snafu that has bugged me for years. US Manufacturers cannot agree completely on US sizes. On a risk, I decided to not divide them by US sizes, but rather by millimeter sizes!
I bring you:
Select the page for the needle size you need. Thank You !!
Be Careful! Not all manufacturers agree what makes a US size. I select my needles based on millimeters.
|I keep promising, so here I go. I'm giving away your choice of knitting needles up to a $30 maximum value. I'll pull a name the last weekend of this month. Comment on the blog your experiences of US and MM sizing and how you store your needles, and I'll put your name into the hat!|
