So, I have bees seeing these for some time now on different podcasts and thought that “Why mess with things that already works?”. I am a DPN user and it works just fine for me and I have tried Magic Loop and hating it, so when I saw these I thought that this must be something in between them both. It’s still a bit Magic Loop when it’s on only two needles but you knit with the third but it’s more like DPNs because lots are using only three needles and knit with the fourth (I use four and knit with the fifth).  So after seeing some podcasters talking about them and showing how they work and and some YouTube films I decided to give them a try. So I ordered a set in 2.5mm (US 1½) and when they arrived I tested them on the spot by casting on a pair of socks. They were a bit fiddly in the beginning but that’s everything when you try it for the first time, but after a few rows of the ribbing they started to slowly work for me.

It did still feel a bit uncomfortable using them but I kept going and when it was time for the stockinette stitch it really started to feel better. I have come a bit further on it and looking forward to see how it will work with the heel with these needles  so I can’t write about that right now so it just have to wait till I get to it. But so far these needles are OK.29790218_10155420321002361_6902465582109985028_n To be continued …


Chiaogoo TWIST Interchangeable Sets

Chiaogoo TWIST Interchangeable Needle Sets are possibly one of the best sets of Stainless Steel circular needles you will find. Using the same cable technology used in the fixed circulars, these cables have a steel core and so they have no memory. Twist t

Då min man och jag firar 10-år som gifta i September och han råkade boka en resa till England utan att tänka på datumet (bless him) så fick jag en en slant nu för att köpa något som ett “förlåt”. Ingen fara. Vi kan fira när han kommer hem. Så vad vad köpte jag? Jo detta fulla set av stickor. Wohoo!! Gissa om jag ser fram mot det. Men EN sak förvirrade mig och det är när man går igenom alla storlekar på detta “Fulla Set”, så finns ej storlekarna 7 och 7.5 med, utan de får man köpa separat ??? Men då är det ju ej ett Fullt Set! Jag har mailat dom om saken så jag får se vad de svarar 😉

 

Dessa röda kablar som kommer med kitet och hur man än vrider på dom så återgår de till sin raka form. Underbart.

Fina markeringar följer med.

Så denna mätsticka, ändstoppar, kabelkopplare till de stora och små stickorna samt en låsnings nycker för kabeln medföljer kitet.

Dessa SPIN kablar kommer jag att beställa lite senare. Vad namnet säger, Spin=Snurra. Kabeln snurrar fritt från stickan så att arbetet hålls still medans stickan kan rotera. UNDERBART!
