Good range of sizes, but sticks to the yarn
on May 22, 2012
I wasn't sure which size needle to use to attain the proper gauge for my most recent afghan, so this set of needles was perfect. However, once I started using the hooks, I found that the plastic really sticks to the yarn, so each stitch is a bit uncomfortable and slower than with a metal needle. That aside, the hook shape catches yarn and draws up loops easily. Strangely enough, the hooks also have a strong odor for the first few days, but it wears off. Although the needles are functional, I find myself missing the weight and smoothness of metal and will return to it! Or maybe I'll try bamboo!
