Boucle Blues :(
Any suggestions for knitting with Bernat baby boucle? I'm using metal needles (fairly pointy), but it is slow going as the yarn is so difficult to slide along.
Thanks in advance,
marla

Have you tried waxing your needles? Sometimes this helps. Simply take some waxed paper and rub your needles with it. The minute amount of wax left on the needles will not damage your yarn, but it should be enough to help it slide more easily. You can repeat this as often as necessary to keep the yarn from grabbing.
