Circular lace needles
Nice to knit with
I am a very old and traditional knitter, and in general not a fan of circular needles at all. I think the preference for straight or circular, and also a knitter's preference for the material and finish of a needle, and the shape of the tip, depends a lot on her knitting style. Having used mainly straight needles with a very glossy enamel finish (the old Aero needles) for over 70 years, I doubt whether I shall ever really embrace bamboo or rosewood, or circulars in any material. BUT: there are times when a circular is appropriate for a particular project, and these Addi needles are definitely the best of their kind. Perfectly shaped tips, a beautiful, smooth and highly-polished finish (so many modern metal needles have a very faintly gritty feel and sound in use), and the transition from needle to cord, which I particularly dislike on a circular, is as good as it can be, really hardly noticeable. Top marks.
Great item, great service. Love this site.
