HiyaHiya has created a beautiful line of circular needles that smoothly glide your stitches off in one effortless motion. The near seamless joints and flexible cord allow easy transition from one needle to the other while warming quickly to the touch for comfort as you knit to your hearts content.
I own several needle sizes of these 9-inch circular needles. They are perfect for socks and for doll clothes. This short needle length (and cable length) is much easier on my arthritis than longer and larger circular needles. There is a special sort of zen to knitting socks without ever stopping to turn your work or worrying about a gap when working magic loop on long circulars.
First time user of HiyaHiya and am really impressed with the sharp tips. Using a US #0 with fingering weight yarn was better navigated with sharper tips. I would definitely recommend for intricate designs using lighter weight yarns.
