I'm really enjoying these needles. They're smooth and the cables relax quickly. Because the cables spin freely, the connectors don't unscrew themselves while you're working. The only difficulty I'm having is finding individual cables or needles. I wish Jimmy Bean's carried them.
I love how the cords swivel so it does not 'fight' you as you knit. Also, the extra long cords is nice if you do magic loop knitting. The connectors do loosen if you swivel the needles a lot in your hands but you know it and simply tighten. The smoothness of the connectors is the best of all brands.
I compared circular needles of various companies and found that this is the best one. Because KA has various size of needles other manufacture does not provide small size of needles and wire. It can change the length of wire with a connection part.
The luck of a star indicate that this set does not include 1.6 mm size which is for US 1 to 3.
i just love my sxchangeable circular needle set and the case that came with it. it is so nice to be able to carry it with me so i can be knitting more than one project. it's like having every needle size at your finger tips. now i can do so must more. i just love it. everyone should own one.
