I purchased size 6, 7, 8 Zephyr tips when they were introduced. I liked them fine.
But I really haven't used them at all, being mostly addicted to Addi Clicks, and Signature circs.
However, in the last week, I've cast on for some "lacy" scarves!
The yarn is lace weight (Malabrigo Lace) and fingering (Madelinetosh).
I had quite a fight
on my hands in finding the right needle! Anything metal (Addi Clicks, Signatures, KnitPicks) was too heavy. The needle would readily fall out of the stitches on a regular basis!
KnitPicks Harmony needles were better, but I tended to knit more loosely with them for some reason.
The tips were okay, but not the best. I was still struggling with my stitches, and gauge.
Then it came time to try my ZEPHYR tips
! VOILA! Perfection!
They have nicely pointed tips
, they are lightweight
, the stitches don't fall off the needle
, and the rise
from the tip to the needle is very gradual!
I am knitting perfect gauge with no tears
since changing to ZEPHYRS!
Just though you'd like to know....
