I found an abandoned project in the cupboard which I thought I would finish.
The back was knitted and completed on metal needles. However, since then I have bought some Symfonie needles (lovely to use) but find that the tension using them is completely different.
I used the same size needles (of course!) but find that the fronts and sleeves are much looser than the back. The knitting is also much less even than the back.
Probably I should have completed the project on the same needles - I am not going to unpick and re-knit as it is just a little jacket for DGD to wear to play in.
Has anyone else found the evenness and tension of their knitting has changed with a change in needles eg metal/wood/bamboo?
