Addi Sock Rockets Needles Review - Speedy Knitting At Alpaca Direct

20140203_115127_resized_1

These Addi Sock Rocket circular needles have the silky smooth nickel-plated finish that is so well-known on the Addi turbo’s.  If you haven’t tried Addi turbo’s they allow the stitches to slide along the needles at incredible speeds.  Some folks may find them a little too slippery but I am all about speed when it comes to knitting socks so these work great for me. They have tips almost like the Addi Lace  and the ChiaoGoo Red Lace which are more pointed but not so much that they grab the next stitch.

 I found that the sock rocket tips don’t appear to be quite as sharp as the addi lace tips but are just right for socks.  I think they are my new favorite’s for knitting socks.  I can knit even faster than normal with these needles, they are super comfortable with a nice, thin flexible cords. If you need a needle with a little more grab then the Karbonz by Knitter's Pride might be a good choice for you.   We will be adding the larger size Sock Rockets to our Addi line that we already carry on our website. Sock Rockets and the regular Addi Rockets are a great addition to Skacel’s needle line.  Thanks Skacel for offering such great products for our customers!
