Beautiful and happy birthday to Margaret.
I test drove a set at Vogue Live, Seattle just after they came on the market. They are really for small projects where dpns would be used, socks, hats, sleeves. These needles do have a learning curve because you are only using 3 needles instead of 4 or 5 but many of the knitters on this site do like them. You can also learn how to use 2 circular needles instead of magic loop. These needles can take the place of magic loop but most will use them for small projects.
If you Google p2tog-b you will see videos relating to p2tog tbl. Grumpy Gramma, you can substitute ssp for p2togtbl, however, you must slip the purl stitches knitwise first, then put them back on the left needle in their twisted position before purling them together. PurlSoho has an excellent written visual tutorial on ssp.
At least they aren't religious ads as in the past. That really annoyed me.

If this yarn is "brand named" check the internet to see what is said about it. If it's their brand you may still be able to learn about it through Google.
Call the company and ask before ordering. Then you'll know for sure.
Teachers have enough to worry about with teaching unruly kids, putting up with unruly parents and now someone wants to arm them. When teachers are paid combat pay, $100,000 as a starting salary and given the resources and training then maybe they should be armed. Until then textbooks and heavy duty rulers will have to do.
