First off, these needles are my absolute favorites and get tons of use. I mainly use the smaller sizes for knitting socks, mittens, hats and other circular type projects but sometimes use them for flat knitting. After years of use, the joins are still smooth and the cords are exactly the same as the first time I took them out of the pack. I love them! Second, huge kudos to Paradise Fibers for actually having sizes US 1.5 (2.5mm) and US 2.5 (3mm)! These "between" sizes are so hard to come by but to also find them in the length I like was a minor miracle. And I will be getting the other hard to find sizes like US 10.75 and US 10.85 in the future. Now, if we can find those rare as hen's teeth 00 and 000 sizes . . . .
Nice circular knitting needles. Easy to hold and maneuver large projects.
I really enjoy these knitting needles! Easy on my hands, no memory retention in the cables which allows for smooth and easy knitting. Was definitely a great purchase.
I bought a pair of these at my LYS because I'm so very tired of snarled cables that are constantly in the way. These cables are a dream. They literally came out of the package totally relaxed, and stayed that way even after I stored them coiled up with my work. They are very smooth and slick. I kept dropping stitches, but I was using a smooth wool yarn as well as having trouble with my hands. I'm sure I would have had less trouble with a sticky yarn. If you want your stitches to slide right off the needles, give these a try.
