Anyway, I watched it over and over again, trying to 'get over' the word 'sticky'.

I think the best word is 'clingy'. For example, she could have said "I love these needles. They're very clingy. The yarn doesn't slip around at lot. The yarn adheres to the needles very nicely"

I'm sure KP lost lots of sales off the back of that awful video. Oy!

On another note: Margaret makes a good point, about acrylic yarn VS natural fiber yarn.
My experience with acrylic: I've heard my Red Heart Super Saver Yarn squeak even with
KP nickel plated needles. Ewww. So it's sorta more the fault of the yarn than the needles IMO.
