        I particularly like using these needles for colorwork because the carbon has a bit of a bite, which means you can keep your stitches spread somewhat and the tension relaxed. I bought the 16-incher for the sleeves of a colorwork sweater. I also particularly appreciate the pointy tips of the needles, which is useful for lacework.

        I so wanted to love these needles, as I knit a lot of socks with Size 0/1, and wanted something I wouldn't have to worry about breaking. I love the carbon fiber material (warm), and the cords are really nice as they don't hold a curled shape and have a good solid feel. Unfortunately, as is the case with most small-sized needles, the joins snagged. Specifically, one had good joins, while the other snagged (I had bought 2 sets), so I'm thinking its a quality control problem.
        As usual, Webs was happy to take the return and followed through with the banking expeditiously.

            I love these needles. Recently needed some 16" needles to make knitting Christmas stockings faster - - these totally fit the bill.

                    I had been dying to try these needles and I am SUPER disappointed. Ordered several sets and not only do they snag at the joint but just beyond the tip on both sides. SO ANNOYING!

                                      Karbonx knitting needles for making hats and socks. I like the size and pointy tips. Once they replaced the defective needle I'm happy with the product.

                                      Service and delivery comments:

                                      I received a defective knitting needle. I emailed customer service and within a short time they emailed me back and told me they were shipping out a new needle and to hold on to the defective one until I received the new needle. I didn't even have to send the defective one back!! How convenient is that.

                                        These needles work well for infant hats made in the round. The shorter length makes it possible to avoid using double pointed needles on these smaller projects.

                                              I like the looks of this product but wish it offered a 20" length. Right now I'm using them on a cotton blend and they are working fairly well. The tips tend to occasionally split the plies when I don't pay close attention.
