Buy them all, you never know which one you will need, until you need
it. They are essential if you have to stop knitting for a while,
unless you like threading fallen stitches back onto a needle. Choose
a thinner holder than the needle you have been using and then
transfer the stitches. Using a smaller size prevents the stitches
from stretching (see 9).
Make sure your tape measure is marked with
inches as well as centimetres. Conversion without a tape measure is
an effort you donít need. Buy lots of tape measures, they wander.
