I really like these needles. They seem quite different, light weight like plastic, but strong, the joins are excellent. So far I have knitted a lace scarf, and am working on socks, both with fingering yarn. I really like them so far. I have a set of addi clicks, which I really love, but I would much rather have one of each of these, if I could. My only wish, is if the tips were more pointed, but they did work fine with fingering yarn.
At first I was a little taken back by the braided look of the yarn as I had not used any like that. I made a beautiful pair of fingerless mitts. I do not even notice the braiding, and the feel of my mitts, were great. This yarn is so soft, now I know why they call it cloud. If you try this yarn, you will not be sorry.
I wanted a nice sock yarn for a shawlette that had the color of worn blue jeans....I tried the color Persia ....it is working up perfect...it is working into a old denim type color, so far not stripey at all, just muted, showing an aged look. The yarn doesnt have a knots or imperfections in it...I have wound both hanks. I dont see how you could go wrong with this yarn...price is great too for the quality of the yarn.
I love the feel of this yarn while knitting. I am making a ruffle scarf with the Sportmate yarn in "Amys vintage" office shade..it has beautiful blue and grey variations. It is working up very pretty. This is going to be a yarn I will order again and again for future projects.
