    what brand circular did you use here? i’d like to get some with blue cord also

    • Kristen says:

      Hi, Cheryl! Those are blue metal straights – I’m not sure of the brand, unfortunately, but I’ve seen similar needles at Joann’s. I don’t know of any circs with a blue cord offhand. (I use Knit Picks Options most of the time, and those have a purple cord.)
