Knitter's Pride - Royale Fixed Circular Needles
Nice tips .. 3 out of 5 stars
... but the cords twists and tists and twists.

ChiaoGoo - RED Lace Circular Needles
Finally ... 5 out of 5 stars
I have all of the ADDI clicks, used the 3.5mm lace tip with Shibui Lunar for a project and pushed and pushed those stitches from the cord on to the tip. Not only was it tiresome I did not like the pull on the yarn itself I really did not want to spend any more money on needles but comfort and reason prevailed, I bought the ChiaGoo and love not only the ease with which stitches slip from cord to tip but the way the cord lays flat. No twisting - never mind that the needles are packed the same way individual ADDIs are. Needle perfection would be ChiaoGoo cords clipped on to my ADDI tips alas ....

Addi - Stitch Counting Frame & Needle Gauge
One ADDI calls for another .. 5 out of 5 stars
.. = a personal preference of mine. I match my rulers to the cutting mat and my swatches to the needles plus the stitch counter.

Hold it! 5 out of 5 stars
They are a bit ackward but they work so long as .i remember to slip my needles through when I must put my knitting down. “remember” being the action word here.

Knitter's Pride - Basix Double Point Needles
So essential for my hats. 5 out of 5 stars
I did get tired of my metal needles slipping out when I knit the last, the decreasing part of a hat. These needles are smooth and stay put until I thread a tapestry, tightly gather the last 8 stitches and weave in the ends.

Jimmy Beans Wool - Fur Pom Poms
No matter the color ... 5 out of 5 stars
.. they are charming. I slipped a long piece of quilting thread through the snap and hung them in my closet. This makes them as fluffy and round as they can get. Subdued colors are for me, pink and fuchsia for the granddaughter.
