Love these needles! Easy to move stitches along. Slightly less stitch splitting. I was using wood needles and they have too much drag for me. I can't begin to tell how much I appreciate the clicks. Now I have needles for all projectsalmost.
I bought this on sale and am glad I have it. It is true that no two skeins are quite the same. Be careful to line them up according to color or knit with two strands alternating each for blending. It knits up beautifully with subtle blending of color. The only thing I am not used to is that texture is a bit harsh since I have been knitting with silks.
