My favorite needles!

Karbonz are my all-time favorite needles. I own several other sets of needles that now just sit in my knitting closet.

The tip is sharp but short, so when you knit complecated lace pattern, you will have problem. A gap between the nickle tip and the Karbonz body, so when you knit, the stitches will hiccups and may demage the delicated yarn. they label the size on the needle, but it comes off after 10 minutes of knitting. I also find the needles are heavy compare with Nova Platina.

            Lightweight and seem very durable. The metal tips are great and seem to make my knitting faster, while the body of the needle keeps stitches from slipping off. I replaced my wood nDPN's with these,and wish I had done it sooner

            Comments about Knitter's Pride Karbonz 6" Double Pointed Needle Set:

            I have been ogling these for a long while. I have dozens of dpns -- both wood and aluminum -- and they're ok but the aluminum feels cold and the hardwood thin needles break so easily, while the bamboo ones grow tiny beards around the points. These seem to be the perfect combination: smoothest metal points on carbon needles that are slightly flexible and never feel cold. I can't wait to make more socks!

                I am currently making socks, and these Karbonz needles are great. The points are good for picking up stitches, and give me good even tension.

                    Great for knitting socks, which I love to do. The short needles are not a problem, which I thought they would be. Five needles are wonderful. The slim points make it easy to pick up the stitches. Well worth the money. Love them.

                          My hands have been hurting after a few hours of knitting with bamboo needles, but not with these! I can knit for hours. Its like knitting with silk!

                            I use these needles for tight spaces ie socks, gloves, and hats. They are great and don't snap/ break like bamboo needles.
                            I just would like a set in larger sizee!
