I love the Karbonz Circular Needles because of the surface of the needles. It is neither too slick, nor too grabby and I find it wonderful for all types of yarn content. The points are great for lace and most of the more complicated stitches.
I have been struggling with wood needles to knit my Haapsalu Shawl.I wanted to be more Authentic In This Knitting. But the size 2 US
wood needlesand I tried many brandswere challenging for me.
CHANGING TO THESE KARBONZ.
made all the difference.
The tip is slick but not slippery, the needle has a substantial feel.
I even had to measure the 2 US to make sure it was the correct size.
It's sizing is spot on.
Most of all they increased my Knitting speed even with all the Nupps.
With the wood I would dread picking up my Estonia knitting. Now I can't put it down because my speed is like with any lace project I knit.
I also want to thank Jimmy Beans for allowing needle exchanges/return.
This option allows Customers to find the needles that work for a project.
My LYS will not take return/exchanges on needles because they think folks might use them for a project then return them. I'm so glad JB rises above that belief and treats the Customers as Adults.
