I love to talk about this, because it’s truly unconventional. Google defines it as: something that is not based on or conforming to what is generally done or believed.
For years, I’ve been drawn to the straight needles. I started out years ago only using those, as I didn’t know that knitting something flat was something you were supposed to use them for. Some straights are better than others. There are many I wouldn’t use, which is why there’s one for everyone.
Lyke Knitting Needles are my absolute favorite. I have so many, but these are my go-to. They are smooth, have a nice rounded point, and when I do my photographs, I can lay it flat. I don’t worry about the stitches falling off, I just scrunch all my stitches down the end.
So, what do you think? Will you give them a try? You won’t be disappointed.
Knit On, with straights!
