I'm knitting this scarf for my daughter, as she kind of likes crazy stuff. I'm finding it difficult to do the seed stitch with such large needles and yarn that varies in thickness, not to mention the occasional fuzzy pearl that needs to be incorporated. The saving grace is that it goes very quickly with that thick yarn and those big needles. Any tips on knitting with needles size 15? They just feel so clumsy to me.

No advice, but I agree! I switched from a project where I was using slim needles, maybe a #6, to a scarf where I am knitting with 15's. Verdict? It is fun and does go quickly, so it's encouraging, but I like the feel of the sleeker, smaller knitting. I eventually find the knitting rhythm/groove, but it takes some doing.
