3.0 out of 5 stars American Sizes - beware, 7 Mar 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: 2mm-12mm Set of 16 Pairs 34cm (14 Inch) IN COTTON CASE Single Point BAMBOO KNITTING NEEDLES By Curtzy TM (32 Knitting Needles) (Kitchen & Home)
I bought these needles in March 2013, and on receipt I wanted to label the 'pockets' in the case as the metric sizes marked on the needles are tricky to read, and I'm more used to English sizing, so I checked the sizes of the needles. The set contains American sizes only, so does not include the metric equivalent of a standard English size 10, and the size 8 is finer than mine, so not interchangeable. As these are the sizes I use most often, I was disappointed with the set, and would have returned them if I hadn't already labelled some of the pockets. This means that so far I've been unable to use the needles so can't comment on their usability
