Knitter's Pride Nova Platina Single Pointed Needle Set

Where are all my knitters today? I have an awesome set of needles to tell you about. You will want to hang out and read on too because there will be a giveaway! You know I am big on having the right tools for the job and if you read my crochet posts, you know I love, simply adore, my Knitter's Pride Waves crochet hooks. Of course, that means when I wanted a great set of knitting needles, Knitter's Pride was where I looked.

They have a lot of new styles (we will be talking about more!!) But the first set I want to tell you about is the Nova Platina Single Pointed Needle Set. The set has 9 pairs of the most popular sized, single pointed needles. (sizes 4,5,6,7,8,9,10,10.5,11). The first thing I want to mention is the case. It is so, very pretty. It is a black cloth material with a stunning floral pattern. It has a zipper closure with a nice big ring pull. Inside, all of the needles are held neatly in place in little elastic slots. This is perfect to throw in a project bag and take with you anywhere. 

On the tip of the needle is a very pretty end that has a wood grain look, made of the popular Symfonie woodOn the very tip you will find the needle size, which is also printed on the actual needle part. I like that they put it in two places because often the printing can wear with use. 

They are made from hollow brass pipes and plated with chrome, which gives it a shiny smooth surface that yarn glides over with ease for really smooth knitting. They have pointy and tapered tips that worked great with the light cotton I was working with. 

Speaking of light weight, the needles themselves are very lightweight and I was able to work with them all afternoon without any hand cramps or stress on my wrists.

These are going to be my new go-to needles for all of my single point projects like this lovely scarf I started.
