Would anyone like these two bent cable needles I have?
They were free with a magazine. I presumed that they were easier to use. Maybe they are if you are new to Aran and cables. But I'm not...I made my ex a four ply cricket type jumper....all in Aran stitches. The bent cables slow you down if you are a confident Aran/cable knitter, although I can see how they help a beginner. No chance of dropping the cabled stitches.
Anyway...I'm serious..anyone who would like these...they can have them. They are blue plastic, one for work up to about 5mm size needles, and one for thicker work.
