I’ve read about a remedy using a nail file to smooth the snag and then nail polish to “shellac” the needle. I happened to have both with me. Go figure. It worked like a charm.
When Michelle set out to swatch for the Poncho Air Lux she discovered that the (color) Dreamz needle she needed was black. That just wasn’t going to fly with this dark brown yarn.
She changed to a metal needle and began her swatch and seems to be getting gauge on a #7, since she knits tighter than gauge.
She knit up a swatch for the Gacoco Baby Blanket in Plymouth Select Superwash (Worsted: 100% Merino 218 yards).
