Let’s Get Knitting!
Last month we shared how Louet North America brought Kollage Knitting Needles up to Ontario (click here if you missed it!). Production continues, with more inventory being made every day! As we continue to stock the shelves, let’s take a look at a few projects which knitters on Ravelry and Instagram are making with our Square Circular Knitting Needles!
Stacey Trock has shared several pictures of her projects in progress with Kollage Needles. She shared a bit of feedback about using them on her Instagram:
- Yup, I do like them! I’m using the interchangeables and the fixed needles come in both firm and soft cord.
- You gauge may change when you use these… but to be honest, your gauge may change with ANY new needle! The grippiness, material, etc all plays into gauge. You should get in the habit of doing a swatch with every needle+yarn combo.
When you share your picture on Instagram, we encourage you to use #KollageNeedles so we can make sure to see it! Shown above from left to right: Donna’s bound off band, Theresa’s hat crown, and Rebecca’s swatching.
Selecting your knitting needles comes down to personal preference. The yarn, stitch pattern, and needle that you choose will all make a difference in your project’s outcome, as well as the experience as you work. Initially, the square needle shape may feel a little different in your hands – that’s because it IS different! Working a swatch will give your hands the opportunity to become comfortable and relax into the motion of making the stitches with your chosen needles.
