Suitable

I’ve spoken before about how, when I first started knitting, I thought “suitable needles” meant needles that look pretty with the yarn, rather than needles that give appropriate gauge.  It made for some rather memorable early projects.  But every now and then, just by chance, the needles that look lovely with the yarn will happen to give perfect gauge.
