This is a follow up to my previous review. After using these for maybe half a dozen projects, the red color has worn off the very tips. Very minor and hard to see unless you're looking for it, but does make me more inclined to stick with the plain silver ones from here on out.
Wow, are these wonderful to knit with! The points are sharper than the other Kollage metal needles. These needles are perfect for working lace patterned socks, mitts especially with Noro Silk Garden Sock yarn. Love, Love, Love, these needles, I plan on adding more to my stash!
These are the same quality needles from Kollage, but with a wonderful deep red color. They are a joy to knit with. Kollage has superior stability compared to other aluminum or steel needles that I have used!
My first time using square dpns and they're spectacular. I don't know if they made my sttiches more even but I did notice that stitches stayed on better when doing a disappearing loop cast on. My gauge in size 3 was equivalent to size 2 in standard DPNs. I'm glad that I splurged a few extra dollars for the red version, which is so pretty and festive. These are now my official needles for holiday fingering weight ornament projects.
I absolutely loved these needles! I bought these needles to make woolen socks, but a more uniform stitch, and they turned out fantastic! These needles allow you to keep your stitches tight, but not to the point where you feel like you are going to break the yarn. I am not 100% if they are aluminum or nickel I was getting a slight reaction to the metal as I was knitting. I have a nickel metal allergy however, since the needles are square, I thought that I might not have been used to the shape. I would highly recommend these! If a 7 long set comes out, I will most definitely be purchasing those as well!
