Knit Pro Circular Starter Set,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Knit Pro Symfonie Wood Circular Needle Interchangeable Starter Set (Home)
Have recently started knitting, and found that the ends of straight knitting needles were constantly rubbing the top of my leg making it sore. Having read reviews about circular knitting needles being used for other than circular knitting, I decided to try them as the needle itself was small.
I opted for these as there were interchangeable lengths in the cables so gave greater flexibility. The items themselves have been lovely to work with, the colours very jazzy and the clear pouch keeps all the items nice and tidy. I have (to date) had no problems with the cable unscrewing. The only issue is that the needle size was difficult to see and is now wearing off. However as I keep the needles in the separate compartments provided in the pouch, this is not really a problem.
It is a pity that Knit Pro do not do a similar pack with half sizes. This pack only has 4mm, 5mm and 6mm, yet a lot of (simple) patterns I have looked at recommend using 5.5mm or 6.5mm.
