If you are like me, when you find a brand that works for you, you stick with it. Knitter's Pride is my brand for both crochet and knitting tools. I get really excited each time I see something new added to their website.
Last time I was browsing the site, the Karbonz Interchangeable Deluxe Set caught my attention immediately. I was curious to see how they would feel since I have never used a anything made with carbon fiber. When they arrived I immediately cast on and the first thing I noticed was that I liked the amount of flexibility. They are ridged enough to give you perfect, even stitches with the slightest amount of give, that I often need as I stitch tight.
The tips are tapered, smooth, brass and glide easily into my stitches; even my stressed out stitches. I found them to be very light weight and easy to knit with. The weight made them perfect for longer knitting sessions, which if you are like me, often happens on the weekend. I also noticed they were warm in my hands also adding to the length of time I could knit.
This set of nine includes US sizes: 2.5, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, and 10. There are four cords that allow you to make lengths from 24" to 40" and there are also size marker end caps and cord keys. All of this comes in a beautiful grey and black fabric, zippered case that has a clear vinyl front and will easily fit in my purse for easy travel since it lays flat. The set really has everything you will need and the needle sizes cover all of the patterns I have wanted to start.
When it comes to quality, I have always been with Knitter's Pride and I have a lot of sets in their various materials. This set also feels to be made of the highest quality materials and I trust I will be knitting with them for a long time to come. I would highly recommend these if you are looking for a new needle set.
