Ugh: Needles

So, I should have waited to get my needles after reading Shetha's comment on my blog. I ended up getting 32" needles and they're too long! Even with my Fixation stretched out to the hilt it's still too tight. I finally ordered some 24" ones and hopefully that will work out better... but for now I'm on hold.

On the bright side, I'm loving how it's turning out (even though I only made it through the first 4 rows).

How is everyone else coming along?

I took one look at the finished measurements and I thought for sure that those long needles wouldn't work. So I used some of my 24" anyway. It seems fine. I've only done four rows and messed it up so I'm sitting here trying to decide if I should rip it out or if no one will ever notice....aye aye aye aye...
