Addi Turbo 24 Inch Circular Knitting Needles

Addi Turbo 24 Inch Circular Knitting Needles

These circular needles have soft, bendable snag-free cords firmly attached to the needle points. They have a smooth brass finish so that they are very fast, quiet, and will not rust. This line of needles is called Turbo for a reason.

Although it takes a fairly experienced knitter to have opinions about the texture of needles, and the resulting friction, anyone who uses these will notice right away their unusual smoothness. The needles glide silently and easily in a way that calls attention to the friction of other types of knitting needles. Whether the added speed is measurable or psychological doesn't really matter, as these needles are simply pleasant to use. They are slightly heavier than wood or plastic needles of the same size, but not enough to cause fatigue or inconsistencies in your piece. Because of their smoothness, however, they could cause problems with certain types of yarn or for inexperienced knitters; it's much easier to slip or split a stitch without noticing.
