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.
This set has tips in the following sizes: 2.75mm 3.25mm 3.5mm 3.75mm 4.0mm 5.0mm Please note this set does not have the 3.0mm tips. These can be included in your set by adding them to your order here.
and cables the following lengths: 35cm/14″ 55cm/22″ 75cm/30″
I have a wide range of circulars, tips, cables and DPNs. Please contact me if you need help or advice on what to choose.
