Knitter's Pride + giveaway! / by jen geigley

Disclaimer: Technically, this is a sponsored post and I was given a few pairs of Knitter's Pride needles to try out and review. That said, I have purchased, owned and knitted with Knitter's Pride needles in the past and that is why I was super excited to write this review. These needles have been my favorite for a few years and now I can tell you why!

I used to think that all knitting needles were pretty much the same ... until I tried Knitter's Pride. They're the most innovative knitting needle company out there, offering carbon fiber needles, cube-shaped needles in wood and metal ... and more. They are also the only company I've come across that offers perfectly soft, smooth cords on their circulars – they lay flat and don't kink or coil up on you while you knit. Let me show you what I'm talking about.

Hello, Symfonie Cubics. These needles are cube-shaped and if you've never knitted with 'square needles', this might blow your mind a little bit. In a good way. The cuboid shape of these birch needles gradually tapers to perfect needle points. These points are perfection. I don't like my needles too pointy and I don't want them to be blunt, either. These are just right.

The incredibly smooth polished wood on these needles won't snag your yarn and won't slow you down. These needles are surprisingly speedy! But the best thing about Cubics is the ergonomic shape; they are comfortable to hold and the cube-shape of the needles helps make your stitches totally uniform. Try these out with a section of stockinette and you won't believe how perfect your stitches will look. It's the magic of the cube. (Yarn is Baah/La Jolla.)


Next, meet Karbonz. Karbonz have the flex and strength of carbon fiber, the same material used in aerospace engineering. They are lightweight and have a smooth, warm feel that's easy on your hands. The nickel-plated brass points are perfectly tapered to a point that's just right, making your knitting easier and speedier.

Plus, they just look cool. My husband was totally impressed that I was knitting with carbon fiber needles. Other knitters swoon when you tell them you're knitting with carbon fiber needles. They might be the coolest needles on the block. (Yarn is Tosh Merino DK.)

Finally (and possibly my most favorite) are Nova Cubics. These, like the wooden Cubics, are speedy to knit with and feel fantastic. These needles make sense in my hands. The cube shape is honestly the most exciting thing I've ever come across in my years of collecting knitting tools.

Nova Cubics are engineered from hollow brass pipes and plated with high quality nickel, making them super smooth and lightweight, ensuring comfort and hours of stress-free, satisfying knitting. The durability of the metal guarantees minimal wear and maximum life. If you're looking for a new set of interchangeables, I'd go for these. If you're wanting to try a new circular, give Cubics a try. (Yarn is Tosh Vintage.)

Speaking of giving things a try ...  I have a really, really good giveaway to share. One super lucky reader will receive a Knitter's Pride Comby Sampler II interchangeable circular needle set.
