Wayward circular needle cords? UPDATE

I was annoyed with the circular cord on my circular needle. As we all know, the stiffness, diameter, the curliness, varies from brand to brand.

One in particular was annoying, to the point of wanting to dispose of the needle. Ugh.

Last ditch effort, I thought about maybe using the “hair dryer” to warm up the cord and stretch it. Dipping in hot water or steam, didn’t budge it.

Low and behold, it worked.

Unfortunately, I don’t have a before and after picture.

UPDATE: The Jiffy Steamer worked even better.
