ChiaoGoo Twist Red lace/cable small set, 5″ tips
Now I don’t know about you but I’m fussy about which needles I use! I have tried plastic (not good) bamboo (ok-ish) metal (quite slippery, makes my joints ache),Rosewood (expensive!) and until I found these lovely needles my pleasure in knitting was a fraction incomplete. No More! These needles are lovely! Yes, they are metal, but not too slippery, and somehow, for metal, my joints feel fine using them. I am also a convert to knitting most things on circulars, even flat knitting, just go backwards and forwards! The combination of cables and Twist tips works for me and I like the fact you can ‘’park’’ work in progress by using the end stops.
Don’t just take it from me either! This is what my customer, Anne-Marie in Denmark had to say…
I’ve been using the Chiagoo interchangeable knitting needle set I ordered from you recently and I couldn’t be happier. The cables stay on—I can’t get them off, even after lots of knitting, without the key (contrast one set of interchangeables I have, whose tips fall off the cables mid-garment). The cables never contort—contrast one famous brand of non-interchangeable circulars I have, which even after treating with hot water, as directed (and why do I have to do this in the first place?) still twist like a cobra. I’m not terribly interested in the cases/ accessories aspect of interchangeables, but the icing on the cake with this set is that the case is small (I don’t want a box the size of a gift hamper), the slots for the needles are labelled, the outside pocket holds the bits and pieces and the fabric is tasteful.
I have a wide range of circulars, tips, cables and DPNs. Please contact me if you need help or advice on what to choose.
