I have used the square double points in the past and really liked them so I thought I would give the square circs a try. What a disappointment. Where the cord joins the needle is too soft. The end of the needle sticks through the stitches and you cant move the knitting along the needle. Too bad because I spent 17.00 on them and will never use them again!
I bought 2 pairs. Started my project and find that they have good pointy tips feels good in my hands the cords are bad. It is very twisty and the yarn sticks to the cord. I'm very frustrated and sad. Returning one pair.
I just love these Kollage needles and the 'Stitch Red' support is a bonus! The square shape is easier to hold great for tired hands or carpal tunnel, the points are sharp enough for the finest lacework and the super-flexible cord stays out of the way & is PERFECT for Magic Loop Knitting no 'ladders' like I get with DPNs.
So easy on the hands, the flexible cord is great for Magic Loop, and the points are fantastic for lace knitting!! I'd put point protectors on if I had small children, but that's the only negative I can think of!
