My memory stinks so I need assistance please. What company makes the DPNs that look like boomerangs and what are the needles called? I've been wanting to try them but can't buy them if I can't remember what it is I want :-( Thanks for helping me.

Are you thinking of the Addie Flex flips?

They also have them in bigger sizes.

Maybe NEKO?

Do the Neko search on this site. Members who have tried them have and have not been satisfied. I created my own by bending metal dpns and found them not to my liking. The Addi Flexiflips were easier to handle.

I ended up using my Neko needles as cable needles, but I'm not a big sock/hat knitter. Should really give them a substantial try!

Thanks for the input. I did not know about the Addi FlexiTips. They look like they might work well but holy mackeral are they expensive. The Neko are the ones I was thinking of but never would have remembered that name. I will do that search on the site and probably have my son bend some short aluminum DPNs so I can give them a try before investing any money. I appreciate the fast and helpful responses.

Crivitz, the metal dpns should be long enough to get your hands around the needles easily. If you have 10" dpns, all the better. I just put mine around a metal drawer handle and bent them to look like bent cable needles

I have a sock on mine right now. There is a learning curve, takes a bit of getting used to. I've done magic loop, don't do well with that, I love my 9" and 11" circulars.

I'm using the Addi Flexflips also called CraSytrio now. I like the flexible bend but still getting use to using them. The cheapest place I found them was at Wool Warehouse.

There’s a product review for the flexi tips on the Very Pink Knits YouTube channel. I just watched it this week.

Neko. They have thin, shorter ones for socks and small hats and thicker longer ones for everything else . Have used all of them and love them. Short learning curve.

I'd love to try the Flexi flips, but with shipping they cost way to much for me....I did find some on eBay with free shipping...but at $35aud each I will wait a little while.....I'd rather buy yarn with those $$$'s

I got mine from Wool Warehouse for about $16. Shipping to the US is a flat rate of $4.99 so I ordered them along with yarn.
