Default Square needles

Hi Jan,

When I went to the link, it said "your browser cannot display inline frames"
and there was no article on square needles - could you post a copy of it
here.

Thanks

David

Default Square needles

They are called Forest Palm Square Needles. This is what Kollage Yarns
says:
We now have our Square Knitting Needles in six sizes: 8, 9, 10, 11, 13 and
15. All needle sizes are 11" in length. These square needles are designed
to fit perfectly in your hands.

They enable you to knit faster with more uniform stitches. At our last
show, we had several pairs of square needles out with yarn for people to
try. One sample was knit on by over 30 different people, but the stitches
were all the same. These will be perfect with those slippery yarns; no more
dropping stitches.

We believe, and have been told by many, the square needles are easier to use
by those who have arthritis, carpal tunnel, or stiffness in their hands and
fingers. You've got to try them!
