***Giveaway has ended~ Thank you to all who participated!
I was given this sexy set of DPNs to take for a test run. Seriously, they are sexy looking, right?
Within minutes of receiving these loves, they were on my lastest pair of socks.
Look at those pointy tips. Me and my Karbonz are now best friends, for the following reasons:
- These needles are so lightweight. I have never been a fan of heavy clunky needles, especially when working on socks.
- The size is imprinted on each needle. No more searching for my needle guage.
- They are sexy. I realize I have already stated this earlier, but it is worth mentioning a couple of times.
- Excellent grip without being too sticky. I had heard in mentioned somewhere that they had too much of a grip. I guess that shows the importance of trying things out for yourself. I found them to be just right.
Now, it may seem like I may be giving these needles a rave review since they were gifted to me for the purpose of reviewing them. But, I can tell you that after a day of knitting with these needles, I went out and bought some fixed circulars to see if the love affair continued. Happy to report the fixed are just as wonderful!
So wonderful in fact that there is a great giveaway attached to this review. The generous peeps at Knitter's Pride will be giving away a Karbonz fixed circular needle to three lucky people. If you happen to be one of the three brilliant winners, you will be able to choose what size you would like.
