Yarn x Needle Combination II

I will be updating this post as I try more combinations! These however are just my opinions, so it doesn't mean it feels the same for everyone.

KP = KnitPicks LB = Lion Brand. Metal includes KP Nickel Plated, Addi and HiyaHiya, Bamboo includes Clover and eKnittingNeedles.
