I've really enjoyed these needles. They are excellent for making socks by the double-pointed needle plan, especially because of their length, which is hard to find (most 2.75 mm needles are only about 6 or 7 inches long, which doesn't allow for the number of cast-on stitches present in a large or extra large sock). As well, the karbonz carbon material is especially lightweight and easy to hold, pleasant to work with, and the appearance, which I leave until last because it is, after all, the least important thing, is very attractive and effective-looking. Thanks for asking.
These needles are fantastic! Strong, smooth, nicely pointed tip, not too heavy, not too slippery, not too sticky. The Mary Poppins of needles - practically perfect in every way! This is my new favorite brand.
I really like the material these needles are made from. The extra length is great.
