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?
