  1. I have a question and am sending this because of the anthology Blanket pattern I found in one of my emails. I would like to make some baby blankets, but have a problem with circular needles. Every time I start a patters, I get about half way through and the needle comes disconnected from the wire. I have tried a number of different brands of needles and have the same problem with all of them. I am hoping you can help me with this problem. What am I doing wrong? Is there something I can do to use the needles I have already purchased?

    Thanks
    Loretta

    1. Loretta, if you’re using interchangeable needles, you may not be securing the wires to the needles. If you are using standard circular needles, it may be related to your tension. Contact the shop where you purchased these needles or the manufacturer for support.
