I just bought a Knitters Pride Nova circular needle yesterday. LOVE it and the cord is soooo flexible. I have bamboo circular needles and the cords are stiff and tangle. I find them very hard to work with. I liked this one so much I thought I would try the Knit Picks Try it Set. I can't hardly wait for them to get here so I can try them out.
Congrats, I just love getting new tools.
I bid and got a 32 inch Hiya Hiya 0000 1.25mm circular last Saturday (1-5-2013). I had to match the 5 DPN and the circular 18 UK of the same size. NOW I can officially start the thread weight socks! <G>
What are thread weight socks?
I have 2 sets of Boye (yeah, I know, not the greatest, but the price was right) cables and just got a set of Harmony. What a difference!! Magic Loop knitting on the Harmonies is fabulous; the cables are super flexible and wood is luscious. The Boyes?? You get what you pay for.
Congratulations! I have knitters pride nova Interchangeables and could not be happier. I started with the sample needles and then chose the nova because they hollow steel felt great to me. I got the short needle set because I am usually knitting small stuff. I feel Knitters Pride joins stand up to the pricier needles.
I love my Harmonies. I just got Sunstrucks so I can see darker yarns better. They are the best needles I have ever had.
I bought the Knit Picks 'try me' set last year.. so glad I did.. each needle has its place and best use even though I use the Harmony the most. I just last week picked up the Knitters Pride 'try me' set and am using the Dreamz size US6 on my lace project. Its just as nice as the Harmony.. I have US7 in cubic's... I can't wait to try it.. I'm going to play with it now since I will be needing that size with my next project.. both Knit Picks and Knitters Pride call their aluminum needles NOVA... I can't help but think these two company's are connected some how.. I had my LYS order the set for me.. I got a discount and it was only $20.00 for the set.. that included 3 needles, end caps, cables and cable key's.. the best part it both sets are interchangeable so I can do a lot with what I have.. I would really like to order some sunstruck.. I'm just not sure what size yet..
I do like to try all sorts of needles - went through a phase last year of acrylic straights and then onto interchangeables - a girl can never have enough sets of needles now can she?
No, a girl can never have too many. And the most expensive ones are cheaper than golf clubs. Lol
Except the most expensive ones, Signature, don't even compare to the cheaper knit picks. Very disappointed as I really like the tips. The cable is horrible. Did anyone else ever try the Signature needles? How do you like the cables?
I can't afford a set of anything right now..so I try and pick up individually as I can for now, however, I have looked at a webvsite about circulars and they questioned if I was looking for solid or hollow cables on my circulars. I didn't even know there were hollows and which is best on circulars? I am thinking hollow sound more flexiblew. Is this what comes with the better setsw of interchangeables?
I have one signature circular and the cable is incredibly flexible. I find the needles slippery but I bought them to make a lace shawl that I haven't started yet so I might change my mind.
HI! and thanks. Where did you find individual Signature circulars. My lys is long gone in my area and only have Craft stores and they don't offer muxch selection at all. :-)
