Like Shetha said, those #35 needles are indeed like knitting with broomsticks. It was a little disconcertng at first, but I was able to finish knitting the turtleneck collar last night. It looks great! I was going to do the edge of the collar with this dark grey color, but I liked the look of one solid color instead. The sweater looks beautiful, but I don't know if it will acutally look good on me. I am also bummed out about the major pilling quality of the Big Wool. I've worn the Twist turtleneck several times now and the sweater sleeves have developed lots of pills near the cuffs. I know that chunky wools tend to pill a lot, but does anyone have any tips?
