I was excited to get these needles since it makes perfect sense for needles to serve as measuring tape. The needles themselves are great to knit with: seamless join, sharp tips, comfortable feel. I bought my size 5 circs specifically for knitting my current sweater project and they have been excellent. Unfortunately, by the time I got to the sleeves of my sweater the 1 markers on the cord had completely disappeared. Whatever type of dye/paint used on the cord did not hold up to a sweater body worth of knitting friction. So if you are looking for needles that feel good, knit great and have 1 markers on the needle tips, this will do. But, if you really wanted to use the cord as a measuring tape I'm afraid these won't work for that purpose.

And these are quickly becoming my GO TO needles! The points, the shafts, the cords - so far nothing bad to say about them! Combined with the brilliant customer service, I’m a JBW shopper for LIFE!

I’m in love with these needles! 5 out of 5 stars (5 out of 5)
The tips, the cord, the shafts - brilliantly smooth, and just the right amount of grab! I can knit for hours on end and my arthritic hands don’t feel terrible. Love the concept of being able to measure right there on the needles. I could go on and on about them, but better you should try them for yourselves. Thanks, Jimmy Beans, for coming up with this brilliant idea!

Just received my SmartStix order and immediately started knitting with them. I love the points, they are super smooth, yarn glides easily. I have a ton of needles but I can see these becoming my faves. Really like being able to use the cord to measure, especially when I travel. I’d love to see them in smaller sizes like 2.25 mm to 3.25 mm

32 Smart Stixsize US6 5 out of 5 stars (5 out of 5)
I am truly in love with these needles. The points are smooth and pointy but not so much that they split the yarn. The join is very smooth and the cable itself is soft and bendable but not in your way when knitting, especially in the beginning when there is nothing much on the needle. The inch markings are very legible especially for these tired old eyes. The color of this size is perfect for lights or darks. The idea of a needle being a ruler too is genius. I usually throw a small project into my purse without a ruler for appointments or visiting. Give them a try, I think you will be very pleased.
