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.

These needles could be perfect. The points are sharp and the shape just right. The texture of the needle shaft is toothy enough yet the yarn slides smoothly. The needles are rigid making knitting exacting. I get great stitch definition. I so want to love these for all these reasons. But the problem is where the tip joins the shaft. Some of the needles have smooth joins. And I just love them. But about half of them are rough and the yarn catches. It is a real shame. So I am going back to wooden needles. With regret, but I cannot tolerate the yarn catching on the joins. Fix this and I am all in with 5 stars

            I finally used my Karbonz for knitting gloves. Love the feel of it. It is so smooth, but yet it holds the yarn enough where the stitches do not slip. It is soft to the touch on my hands. My new favorite go to needles. I loved it so much, I bought the regular sized circular set.

              I was unhappy with the bamboo available where I live. These needles were the perfect upgrade. They have a good amount of traction, while still being easy on my hands. I am very pleased with them.

                      I use thesexclusively as my wood ones break too easily, and I use very small yarn and needles.

                        Gave my 20 year-old granddaughter this set for Christmas as it was on her list. She loves them!
                        She gives knitting lessons and works part-time in a knit shop and these are "tops" in her book.

                        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.
