        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.

                          These are extremely comfortable to use, and they do an excellent job at creating even stitches. Karbonz are now one of my favorite needles.

                              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!

                                            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.
