I have a huge collection of needles that include various sizes of double-pointed needles, 10″ straights, 14″ straights, circulars in multiple sizes and brands, and two sets of interchangeable needles.
I am a knitter who loves to try new things, new brands and new methods. During this time of trying out all the latest and greatest, I have noticed one thing about me, I keep coming back to one particular brand that I find to be a favorite, and that is Addi. To me, Addi always has the smoothest joins between the tip and the cord. There’s nothing worse than to have a rough join to cause yarn to catch, which I currently have going on with one particular needle that is driving me bonkers but one much finish the sock one started!
Since I have discovered how much I love knitting toe up socks, I have decided it’s time to knit two-at-a-time toe up and purchased two 24″ size 1 (2.25mm) circular needles by Addi called Turbo Sock Rockets (on sale for 20% of at Paradise Fibers.
“Styled after our popular addi Turbo® Lace, these extra-pointy tips feature the same great nickel-plating that gives the classic addi Turbo its incomparable zip. Available in a 40” cable that is perfect for the Magic Loop method and a 24” cable that will work wonderfully in pairs. “
Now I am very excited to try these needles, but I am curious to know about you and what you like.
- Do you use a set of DPNs, a circular for magic loop, two 24″ circular for two-at-a-time or two circulars for one-at-a-time?
- What is your favorite brand of needle and why?
Have a wonderful Sunday afternoon!
Until next time, happy knitting, crocheting, spinning and crafting!
