I love the Clover line of Bamboo needles. They feel natural and smooth in your hands. Yarn also slides easily on the needles which allows for better knitting. Also you can just a little lotion on your hands and then on the needles to add to the smoothness. This also can infuse some of the feel/smell of the lotion into the yarn.
I recently purchases the Interweave Knits Special Edition - Accessories. I had seen the preview on IW and thought that they were great projects. When I opened the magazine I found that the preview pictures were the only good pictures. The pictures in the magazine are blurry, dark or just small. You aren't able to see the detail in more than half the pictures due to being out of focus. Others are taken with so little light that you can barely see the shape, much less the design. By no means am I a professional photographer, but I know how to get better focus and light. I am so disappointed and frustrated that I can barely look at the magazine. I expected better quality from IW and especially when I paid $15. I hope that this helps anyone that is looking to buy this magazine. Preview in your hands before you buy.
I recently purchased the Clover Small Point Protectors. I was pleasantly surprised by the lime green color (versus the teal that I saw) that I received. They are "gummy" which helps them to stay on. This also makes them a little hard to get off, but insures they won't fall off in the bag.
I like the small and the large point protectors from Clover. I would recommend them and also purchase more in the future.
