Hi all!! i do not know what my obsession is with single point, straight needles, since i am a confirmed KP circular user. But i guess i like to use single points sometimes. SO every once in a while i buy a pair. My question is - how do you all choose the length? 10 or 14 inch (or whatever). I tend to pick the shorter, as the longer seems awkward. But i guess if i were to knit a sweater in pieces, or an afghan, i would want the longer? is that the only reason i'd want the 14's?? WOuld i want the 10's for most regular old knitting projects? I guess i mostly do small stuff, anyway, So another question is, should i get the 14's, since i can always do smaller stuff on longer needles, but not bigger stuff on shorter needles.... right?
thanks for your input!!
