How do you store fixed circular knitting needles?
Use plastic page protectors for storage if you have a lot of needles. Plastic page protectors, like the kinds used for reports, are perfect for keeping your circular needles organized. You can then keep the protectors in a 3-ring binder. Mark the size of the needles on the plastic to help keep track of them.
How do you keep circular needles from twisting?
If you have Boye needles, or something similar with an incredibly stiff cable, they may always twist a bit. One thing you can try is dunking the cord in a cup of near-boiling water for a few seconds, and then holing it taut. That uncurls the cable and makes it easier to work with.

Why does my knitting twist around needle?
The most likely culprit is that you are wrapping your yarn the wrong way around your needle on either the knit side, the purl side, or both. This can result in this row of stitches being twisted, because when you wrap the yarn the wrong way the stitch becomes mounted on the needle incorrectly.

What are double pointed knitting needles used for?
Double – pointed needles are used to knit in the round for items that are too small for circular needles. For instance, when you knit a glove on circular needles, the stitches comprising of the glove’s fingers become so tight that they cannot be worked around the circular needles.
How do you knit in the round with circular needles that are too long?
Change your needle to one with the same size but a shorter cable that fits inside your stitches. This is the most obvious solution. But not always the best. It can be a bit fiddly to knit with a really short cable, you don’t have so much room to move your tips.
