Good but .......... Review by Stephanie (Posted on 26/07/2015)

I have 3 pairs of these gorgeous needles. They look so fabulous (even glamorous!). However, there is a downside I discovered today; I have been knitting a sweater with a yarn that is a mixture of linen, wool and cotton it is unpredictable - thick here and thin there and with these needles it is knitting up a treat (I will also mention that the yarn is an ivory colour) - today I wanted to try out a new stitch and used some spare (thankfully) Merino-based wool. I found that the wool 'caught' where the tip met the carbon fibre - there is definitely a slight 'gap' at this point - I tried on two pairs I have and i had a good look at the pair I am using now and I found the same problem on each pair! I experimented with a couple more 'unpredictable' yarns and they knit perfectly! I would now go for a different needle to knit some of the smoother and finer yarns - even DK and be wary of the darkness as well because it makes some darker coloured yarns very difficult to see on the needles.
