I found a sweater pattern I really really want to do, and bought some simple yarn. Just don't have the size needles I need for my Knitmates. I hit up the craft store today during lunch. No Knitmates points in the size I want, so I grab a pair of static-cable Lion Brand circulars.
Do. Not. Like.
Are the points a hollow plastic? They feel super light in my hands, and it's totally throwing me off. They'll make due, of course, until I get my Knitmates, but after that? Who knows. I'm totally spoiled to using what I have now and really liking them.
Ugh. Anyone else use these and like them? This is my first time trying their needles.
I saw those and thought they were cheaply made. I like wood and bamboo needles. The Clovers are great. I didn't like Addis because the cables are too thin and they kink all over the place. I spend more time unkinking them than knitting. I got spoiled on Knitpicks Harmony Wood interchangeable needles last fall. The tips are extra pointed so PSSOs and bind offs are very easy. I guess it depends on your preference. Take them back and stick with what's best for you.
