Splitty yarns are the pits.
As tempting as it is to blame the yarn, part of the problem stems from the needles we're using. If the tips don't get along with the yarn's fibers, twist, and ply construction, you're headed for splitsville. Change the needles, and you may live happily ever after.
This week we explore needle tips, the pointy, mid-ranged, and blunt alike, to help ensure each of your projects is a happy one.
