I had been thinking about buying some addi lace needles for a while but I dont knit that much lace. I got these and they were amazing for socks! Haven't knit any non sock projects with them yet but I really like them.
I'm VERY pleased with the Addi Sock Rockets Needles in size 00. I am knitting socks using lace weight yarn, and the 5 needles in 32 length. The needle join to the cable is quite smooth, and the tips are perfect for the single ply yarn I'm using.
To be honest, I have not yet knitted with these particular needles however, if the Addi Turbos are any indicator, I expect these will perform at least as well. I use my Turbos exclusively with my lace knitting, and the tips on these are just as pointy, which is just how I like to knit my socks. The joins feel just like they do on the Turbos, so that is also a selling factor for me. I primarily purchased these to learn how to knit two socks at a time, and I am pretty sure they will do the trick!
