And there was two joins... 2 out of 5 stars (2 out of 5)
OK - first pair of circulars by Knitter's Pride. After hearing so many amazing reviews of the Karbonz, I was delighted to order my first pair. Pros: Lightweight - WOW - they are such a beautiful weight and a feel amazing. - one star The tips of these needles are divine - very sharp and handle my fingerling weight with great ease. Cons: The join, from tip to needle - snag. The join from needle to cord - snag. My gorgeous silk alpaca snagged - OK will not be deterred. Alpaca silk is sometimes finicky. So cast on merino silk swans island - snag, snag, snag - four rows in DONE with snagging. Batter Up - now trying rowan fine tweed. Will come back if it does not snag and report. I am a speedy knitter, I don't want to fiddle with my yarn as it moves across - not one but two different joins on a needle, this slows me down to such a degree it is a nuisance. I moved back to my addi's for said projects above. Really hoping I got a bunk pair that made it through QC.
