I'm just on my second pair of socks, but I did the first pair with DPNs and the second pair with these circular needles, and they are definitely faster for the circular parts of the sock. If you haven't seen these, the bamboo part is very short, and it does feel a little scrunched, but not as bad as you'd think. I feel like they could make them longer--say, 11 inches--because the cable is pretty crowded.

I was using double points on socks, but they are hard to handle for size 1. I got these circulars and generally like them - much better than DP. But, as mentioned by another reviewer, the needle part is really short so my fingers bunch up and cramp after a bit. I also wish the cable went out straight from the points, instead of an angle in the metal connector. That bend is a nuisance for me as I tend to hit it with my finger and jerk the point around. This is only a problem as the points are so short. In summary: much better than DP but not my perfect sock needle yet.

        Comments about Clover Takumi Bamboo Premium 9" Circular Knitting Needles:

        While these are very delicate and I love them, they are not for everyone. They are easy to snap. Points are sharp, they are very light and with the right hand they are fabulous. I started a pair of socks in a yarn that is very fine and slippery (silk and wool) and they have the right amount of grab for me. Personally I love them!
        WEBS delivery, customer service and prices are outstanding especially for Canadian rural customers. No extra charges and delivery into my mailbox within 10 days.

          I have been knitting boot cuffs that have 60-80 stitches in the round. These are a great alternative to double pointed needles.

              When I first saw these, I thought they'd be a great alternative to double-pointed needles for small items, but the thicker part for knitting is so small, I find them extremely uncomfortable to use

              Comments about Clover Takumi Bamboo Premium 9" Circular Knitting Needles:

              Love the idea of sox on circs. Great for travel. The yarn I'm using (Lang Mille Colori sock & lace yarn) catches on the spot where the wire attaches to the wooden needle head. This is most annoying. I tried a dab of clear nail polish to smooth out the join, but that didn't last. Otherwise, could be a great little product.

                I use these for knitting sleeves when the yarn is fine. I absolutely hate using double-point needles so these are perfect for me. Have not done socks because of the dbl pt situation but, will definitely try them now on these wonderful little needles. Am so glad WEBS carries many sizes.

                          To knit the first row after casting on I found I had to take my time, the stitches were a little difficult to maneuver. But after the first row it was smooth sailing. This for me is much easier than using double point needles

                              Comments about Clover Takumi Bamboo Premium 9" Circular Knitting Needles:

                              I read the reviews (on various websites) before purchasing them. I wasn't quite sure, many people say it's hard/impossible to knit with 9" needles, others are doing well with them.

                              First of all, knitting on 9" circulars IS different than knitting with normal circular needles. That's to expect!
                              I got some cramps in the hands for the first 2 rounds or so, then my hands got used to holding the needles differently/more loosely.
                              I am one who doesn't like dpns and I find the magic loop a bit annoying, especially when doing small things.
                              These needles are just perfect for me, I might become a sock knitter!

                              The best advice I can give is: you have to try them to know if they'll work for you.
