Needle point: Before synthetic knits were invented, machine needles were sharp. Sharp needles snag or run knit fabric, so more rounded, or 'Ballpoint' needles were invented. 'Universal' needles are a compromise between 'Sharps' and 'Ballpoint' needles; that is, Universal needles can be used on a wider array of fabrics. However, it is best to choose the best needle for each individual project. Ideally, you should choose a new needle each time you start a new project.
