5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant Needle Set, 11 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: KnitPro Nova Metal Interchangeable Needle Deluxe Set, Silver (Kitchen & Home)
I decided to learn how to knit Continental Style, as I was beginning to have a lot of pain in my shoulder from knitting. With the English Style of knitting you 'throw' the yarn & this means alot of movement in the shoulder. Which has started to cause me pain. With this new style, the straight needles can be cumbersome, so I decided to go with the circular needles. My shoulder pain has gone completely & my knitting speed has increased greatly.
I bought the steel set because yarn doesn't slide on wood or plastic needles very well. The yarn slides perfectly on these needles. On certain stitches your tension can become quite tight, cables for example. The yarn still slides perfectly. They also stay very cool, so this helps with keeping your hands from becoming sweaty, which is really annoying when knitting. They have sharp enough points for using very fine yarns with ease. The connector cables are very easy to use. Just be careful not to screw too tight as you might risk stripping the screw threads. The cable has little to no shape memory in it. So when you un-coil it to use, it doesn't try to coil back up again. That can be very frustrating.
The packaging is quite cheap though. But I didn't buy this set for the packaging.
Very, VERY happy with this needle set.
