These are gorgeous needles that feel terrific in my hands and glide right through stitches. I'd been swooning over these for quite a while, but just couldn't bring myself to spend 20+ dollars on a single set of DPNs. So when I saw them heavily discounted as a Wool Watcher sale item, I jumped at the chance to add these to my collection. And now that I've actually worked with them, I think they are just fantastic and well worth the money. I'll be buying more, sale or no sale.
I had to wait a couple weeks for a new shipment to arrive before I could get my hands on this adorable little thing...but I'm glad I did!
The case is lightweight, but well-made and durable. I was especially pleased with the suppleness of the transparent plastic material on the front of the case, as well as the zipper. Two small things that elevate the overall quality greatly!
Also, the size of the case is perfect for me. I love that it's slim and fits effortlessly into my knitting bag. The little pocket inside is a cute little quirk that makes the case unique as well as functional. I tuck my darning needle and a pair of snip-n-slips in there...perfect!
All in all, I love this case. It's not big enough to hold all my notions (I have waaay too many) but it holds the essentials, plus a couple extras. I highly recommend this case....in the Foxy print!
I think I liked the idea of these more than I had a tangible need for them, when I ordered them. But once they arrived, I found all sorts of ways to put them to use and can no longer imagine knitting without them. Especially when working cables or otherwise advanced patterns, they can take a lot of the guesswork out of place markers.
These double points feel great in my hands. They've got a silky smooth finish that has just enough grab. And not only are all the different colors rich in tone and gorgeous to look at, they make it easy to identify the size!
I do not think this bag was worth the 9 bucks I paid for it. The canvas and zipper are both heavy-duty and durable. But the finishing was disappointing. It's a sturdy bag, but the fraying at the end of the zipper and odd bits of thread sticking out here and there make it look kind of cheap, which it isn't. Then again, my particular bag could just be an anomaly. All that said, I like it, I've put it to good use. It just wasn't quite what I was hoping for.
I'll give this 4 stars, because the colors are just jaw-droppingly gorgeous. I do wish it were softer, and am hoping that in time, with wear, it will be. But hands down, it's some of the most vibrant, eye-catching yarn I've ever had in my stash.
I bought this case because I'm leaving on vacation soon, and wanted something to help me pare down my knitting bag for the road. This case is PERFECT. I can easily fit everything I need for knitting on the go, and then some. It's beautiful and silky and roomier than it looks. If you're partial to dpns, circulars & interchangeables, and you like to have options without bringing your whole knitting bag along, you should own one of these!
