The search for the perfect needle for me is like the search for the perfect purse. Sometimes, you just need to go back to what you have and use it. I bought a couple of pairs of Karbonz needles in Janesville a couple of weeks ago.
I figured I would give them a try. I used the circulars on Mona Lisa's Beret. They were okay.
I, also, bought a pair of double points for some sox that I am knitting on. There okay too.
Problem is they are a little short and tend to knit me there in the fatty part of my hand. I'm not crazy about that, but I am going to keep knitting with them.
Will I go out and buy some more? Probably not. It's just that I don't love them enough to buy more.
