I have been curious to try HiyaHiya Bamboo Tips before committing to buying an entire set. The points are fairly sharp considering they are bamboo and pointy enough to use for lace. The bamboo surface is smooth and not as grippy as my Clover Bamboo. I am really enjoying them so far.
I love the feel of them in my hands. They are light and warm and they hold the yarn just enough to make knitting easy on my arthritic hands, enabling me to knit for longer periods of time.
My favorite knitting needles. The "grip" allows for perfect tension and even stitches. Prefer over Addi lace turbos which are also excellent needles.
