Needle sizes


Gail asked about the size needle to use for her yarn. With Cloud 9, I would start with a size 7. The label states size 5 but that is for stockinette. Lace needles need to be bumped up a couple of sizes in order to open up and show the pattern pretty.

For 8/2 tencel, I am using a size 5 and hope it is not too open. But, the bottom line is are you satisfied with your fabric when blocked out.

Suggestions, Mary?
