I've found using these to be faster than dpns or magic loop for knitting socks. It only took me about a half hour before things were running smoothly. I used to have problems with laddering, but not with these. I appreciate having a choice between the sharp and blunt tips as well. The blunt tip is great for yarns that tend to split. They are a little pricey but I love knitting socks so they will get a lot of use.
better than regular DPNs
excellent, makes knitting hats so much easier
Friendly folks with excellent products. Highly recommend.
Thanks to a recent email from Alpaca Direct I was introduced to these superior double pointed needles that have literally transformed the way I knit sleeves. Before these needles I dreaded getting to that point in my knitting. Now not only do I look forward to knitting sleeves, it is so much easier since I found these needles. On my current project I am knitting into the sleeves a very intense and lacey design on very few stitches that takes no time now and is very accurate with the addition of knitting with these extremely flexible needles and their tips.
