It is such a pleasure to use these rosewood cable needles. If you are like me and love to use natural fibers and yet our tools are plastic. No thanks! I want my tools to also be lovely to look at and to use. These perfectly fit the bill!
I purchased these without the slightest experience in cable knitting and upon receiving them I immediately dove into learning simply because I wanted to use them! The wonderful slightly pointier end very much helps to grab some of the more difficult loops and the smooth wave design in the middle as well as the ultra smooth texture of the wood makes these a delightful treat,
These are by far my absolute favorite cable needles ever! They are smooth and warm to the touch, but they don't slide out of your stitches like so many cable needles do. I would recommend these to any knitter!
This is the third set of cable needles I've tried. First was the standard metal kind, and I found them slippery and a little oddly shaped. Next was a grooved one that was straight I liked the size of them, but the yarn would get a little caught up in the grooves, and they just weren't very convenient because of that. These are perfect! Lightweight, easy to handle, stitches smoothly go on and off, but stay secure. I feel like Goldilocks, if she was a knitter...Yes, these are just right. Love! Think I need to order more...
