Crystalites Acrylic Knitting Needle Assortment
Overview & Details
Knitting is fun! These beautifully colored, translucent acrylic knitting needles feature a smooth finish so yarn glides easily for a "light as air" knitting experience. This assortment contains four pairs of pink, purple, green and blue needles in sizes 8, 9, 10 and 10.5.
Lovely to use
I saw knitting master Lily Chin using these needles in one of her videos and wanted to try them. These are nice, lightweight needles. If you're used to using heavy metal needles, these will be a refreshing change for you, because they are light enough that you don't get as tired knitting with them. They are also easy to manipulate. The stitches don't slip off, yet they transfer smoothly to the other needle. It's also a benefit to have each size a different color too. Not only can you pick out both needles of a certain size easily, but you never have the problem of using needles of different sizes by accident (which I have done when all the needles in a set were the same color). The clear plastic case they come in is more for display purposes than for keeping them. My case arrived cracked, and I just discarded it and bought a nicer needle case. Given how inexpensive these needles are, I didn't expect a high-quality case with them anyway. I really like these needles and am glPammy6, OH
Excellent Knitting Needles
I found these needles to be great. I am teaching a group of seniors to knit and these needles are excellent because the yarn does not slide like the metal one. The seniors that was about to give up was able to stick with the project and they are very happy. I thank you. Hopefully you will have these needles on discount soon so that we can buy more.Anonymous, NY
