OOOOOoooooooo - I would SO love to give these a try. I've read some great things about them and honestly - this comes at a perfect time. A good many of my needles are very old and are starting to literally wear out. Wooden and bamboo tips starting to splinter - metal needles loosing their finish, etc. Am slowly replacing them, but sometimes it's hard to choose - or afford. I guess all I can say is "Pick Me,Pick Me!!! LOL Thanks for the opportunity - Rav - etqoe1953
Ohh great giveaway! Still trying to complete my needle set with a new addition every now and then... and from your review, these seem perfect for sock knitting!
Thank you for hosting this, I'm so grateful it's opened to international readers :)
Always good to try new needles. Been wanting to try these. Ravelry I'd ajdag

I didn't post about my loves this month, did I? Next week I will send you to many great places to be inspired. How is your knitting coming along? Are you finishing up things, casting on all things, or both?
Enjoy this video. It is an instructional video, but so beautiful that I find myself watching it over and over. Wish I could be knitting along side Robin, drinking some tea.
