During my travels I ended up in a discussion about my favourite needles.  I’ll admit, it changes from time to time.  I’ve tried a variety of sock needles (bamboo; metal; square; round; 5, 6, or 8 inch) and my favourites for about a year are the basic metal Knit Picks 6 inch double points.


My current obsession though is my Knitter’s Pride Marblz I purchased for mittens.  I did buy them because they were so pretty, but the fact they come in a 6 inch size was a big draw too.  I sometimes find it’s a difficult length to find larger (non-sock) needles in, and for me 8 inch needles are awkward with the few stitches per needles required for mittens.


I was a little nervous when I started knitting with them; they felt very bendy and I was worried how they would hold up.  Granted it’s only been a pair of mittens, but they aren’t showing any signs of permanent bends.  I like that they have enough “grip-tion” so the stitches stay put but will still easily slide off when knitting.

And did I mention they were pretty?

One thought on “Marblz Needles

  1. Interesting. I’m just learning to knit again after 3 strokes. Btw, stop by my blog and see where I have nominated you for a Liebster Award! I didn’t know how to notify you otherwise, as my computer kept crashing. This is from my Kindle.


I'm wondering what you're thinking?
